They need the freedom to explore, take risks, and experience adventure though more often than not those things involve pain. We need to be available when they come to us for itbut we need to give them room to grow through their pain and failure.
That means being needed less. The son feels smothered. Expect the Son to be Better We all want our sons to do better in life than we did. Sometimes I think we forget that we had to learn some life lessons through pain and trial. We can start to expect our sons to know the lessons already when it took us years to learn them.
