There are times when you wish with all your heart that you had the benefit of knowing exactly what to do. This was because you had gained wisdom from a source that was utterly reliable!
However, there are times in life when someone who is in your care is innocent of all knowledge and you want to ensure that they are safe, and not at the mercy of bullying and so forth. Of course, I am speaking of a child, and the outcome of a hasty solution to a problem years old; that has since grown teeth and has come back to bite me!
All I can say is this.
Most parents are totally aware of their duty towards raising their children, and exercise good judgement under sometimes trying circumstances. Sometimes you wonder what the answer to an issue might be; and in my case; as a 'first time' parent, I found myself in a couple of dilemmas, about which I had to make quick decisions!
The fact that I was well-intentioned is beside the point.
Right now I am living to regret there were things I simply was not expecting! Consequently I trod down the wrong path occasionally in an effort to restore peace and harmony!
I need to stand back and take another look.
Maybe if I wait and deliberate for an extra chapter, something will come out of the woodwork and introduce itself to me; thus allowing a point of view, most pertinent?!
Yes; I will deliberate.
I have decided I am happy - it's midweek already when only a split second ago . . . . it was Terrible, Torturous Mundane Monday!
