“Catch me mama?”
Remember when you would play that game with your wee ones? Maybe you still do.
Promising them you WOULD be there. You WOULD catch them. You would NOT let them fall. And you didn’t.
Our babies. Our toddlers. Our small people. We would never forget them at school. Or fail to feed them. Yes, there is always the occasional failure…we are human after all. However, for the most part, we are their lifeline. They trust us. For everything.
But what about your teens? Would they play that game with you today? Do they really believe that you won’t let them fall?
Failed follow through.
These things weigh heavily on a child. Yet they still trust. Or do they?
