Parents do understand…

Parents do understand…

Until you have a child of your own, you cannot pass judgment on your parents. At least not a definitive one…

You see…we were once you, imagining that our parents didn’t understand.

Doesn’t mean that we, as parents, aren’t wrong about things, but after all, isn’t everyone wrong about something some of the time?

It means that we too had a particular set of hopes, dreams, fears, loves, hates, passions and having a child(ren) changed us totally and completely in ways we never expected.

And it seems like every month I spend with my own child, things about my parents that I could never understand, suddenly make more sense.
