Thank you, Amy Wright Glenn for sharing this. Such a great reminder for all parents, at whatever stage you're in!
I, too, think I have been an elephant mom...and continue to be. While my kids are getting older and becoming more independent, subtle shifts start happening in both of us, parent and child. It looks different from the under 5 years...and I often pause to consider what my 7 and 10 yr old need, but I still remember to let our connection guide me as a parent to know where they're at and what my role should be. Not fear, not insecurities. Trust in the child, trust in the relationship we've built. Strive always to be our best selves of course, but know that they are enough, and I am enough. 💗
