Sample text

It turned out that our kids were trying to protect us out of their love and regard for our feelings, but we had interpreted their silence as a lack of caring. When we all realized how easily all of our feelings could be hurt, how easy it was to misinterpret the actions of the others, we made a commitment to communicate more openly with one another. ” As this personal testimonial illustrates, when it comes to interfaith weddings, feeling “left out” is a common parental problem. Sometimes it seems as if everyone feels left out, no matter who they are or what decisions are being made.

It is helpful to remember that even when it does not seem like it, what you feel and think matters to your child. Have you ever met a child whose true desire is for the unhappiness and disapproval of his or her parents? It may often seem as though children go out of their way to make choices in their lives designed to give their parents more gray hairs than they deserve, but the reality is that it only seems that way. In truth, children usually are doing what they can to make the best decisions they know how for themselves, in spite of their parents’ best advice, in spite of their parents’ heartfelt desires.

Sometimes the best antidote to feeling like a failure as a parent is simply to take the time to identify what our true values really are that we would most want to pass on to the next generation. ” It goes like this: 1. Write out exactly what your own values and ideals really are. What are the things you stand for in life? Pick the top five values that you cherish, that you most want to pass along to your children, which you would most want your children to embrace and live out in their own lives.
