Parents and children

Da Goddess tells about taking a drive through San Diego with her 7-year old son, Little Dude, and talking. The recent fires upset him a lot. She was very good about waiting for him to bring things up, then explaining them. What was striking about her story was the way that mom and son are, in addition to everything else, friends. It is not all that common for parents and children to be friends, either that or the storms of adolescence tend to bury that friendship, but it happens.

I hope that I can be a similar high quality low-key parent for our kids. Tip o' the hat to Da Goddess.
