As parents, we have the greatest and yet most difficult jobs of all. We are role models, caregivers, and friends to our children. But of utmost importance, we are their guides. I came across this quotation this week and found it inspiring. I would dare to change the last word to “guide,” as I feel it is our most important role. Enjoy!
“Don’t walk in front of me, I may not follow. Don’t walk behind me, I may not lead. Walk beside me and be my friend.” – Albert Camus (also attributed to Maimonidies).
