And the Golden Globe Goes to… YOU, Evolving Parent!

I realize the Golden Globe telecast isn’t super-high on the priority list for some parents, so I wanted to loop you in on this, in case you missed it: in accepting the award for Best Direction of his extraordinary film Boyhood, Richard Linklater dedicated it to “parents that are evolving everywhere.”

Or as I like to call us, “parents in progress.” We are all ages, and our children range from pre-birth to adult. We are the curious ones, the researchers. We are the parents who have our ears tuned for new information that will enrich our family’s life. We are the status-quo buckers.

    That was a wonderful post indeed πŸ™‚

    I can well imagine all that you must have gone through during your childhood, and then later when you were expecting your own kids. It’s certainly not easy, but you managed to do so well, which is commendable. I guess that’s where all your struggles and learning came into practice, and made you reach where you are today.

    Being a mom of teens too, I can relate to parenting, though have been lucky that ways to not had a tough ride,except the usual ups and downs of parenting, and that every parent goes through. Nevertheless, a learning experience for all.

    Thanks for sharing. Have a nice week ahead πŸ™‚

      Thank you for the nice comment, Harleena, both here and at mothering. (As you can see from the dates of both my responses, I’m more diligent checking in with my guest posts than with my own site, sigh!) Blessings… M
