Parenting is both a privilege and challenge. In the beginning, it brings so much joy as we watch our children grow and begin to learn new words and concepts. We laugh as they mispronounce new words, use a word incorrectly, use them out of context or repeat big phrases they don't understand. Then they learn the power of new words like “why” or “what's dat?” and we answer the endless questions (studies say around 300 for the average 4-year-old) of a curious and growing mind. We wish we could stay in that sweet place of easy answers, laughter, and trust. But a day comes when the questions become harder to answer and the issues more complicated.
