Our Children...

Now that I'm older, and
my children are nearly grown,
I can look back
and see the many errors
I made as a parent.
I didn't spend as much time
as I should have.
I was too impatient,
too tough at times,
too soft at other times.
I didn't listen enough.
I didn't praise enough.
I yelled too much,
worked too much,
and was too distracted by
my career when they needed me.
Most of us, if we're honest,
can admit that we've erred
as parents.
But the good news is
that it's never too late
to be a good parent,
because our children need us
all of their lives--
just as we need them!

"Our Children," written and designed by Bobette Bryan, 2003
