Thank you so much for reading and understanding this unique perspective. Funny how society dictates all the perfect antidotes for raising the perfect kids, but no one has anything to say when after you do all the things the prescribed and you kid doesn’t end up “perfect.” Funny also how we must be silent and cheery while we suffer alone in silence. We need to be more frank about real life, and the struggles of parenting to include parenting children who just can’t leave the nest. It’s a real drain on a parents’ mental and emotional well-being, which is also important. Parents are people too.
