Parent Minute

I was only trying to help—really!

Posted on 10/18/2018 by Greg Yoder

Do you remember the TV show Everybody Loves Raymond? Remember Ray’s mom, Marie? After interfering with Ray and Debra’s parenting or home life she’d say, “Well, I was only trying to help.” Mom and Dad, as we watch our kids feeling their way through parenting, we need to make sure we stay quiet. They’ll ask for help when they need it. You remember when you were a parent for the first time, don’t you? Did you like it when your mom or dad gave you unwanted advice? The reality is they’re going to make mistakes, just like you did. They’re going to think they have all the answers, just like you did. And, guess what? They’re going to learn, just like you did.
