How do you foster your children's sense of independent thought during times of peak tradition? And can you do it without being a total party pooper?
Thank you for another brilliant piece. I hate to dampen my son's enthusiasm for anything, really, but there are some areas where I find myself struggling to buy into whatever he's been told. Recently we've had to discuss what happens when you die as someone had told him about Heaven. It's not something I believe in, and I said that, but then I'm worried I just left him more confused. A minefield! x
Great piece! I can't bear them & fear so many people have bought into them & that they're sonething to celebrate, despite everything that has happened these last 12 years...horrifying.
