A Note from the Counselor

Room to Grow:

Have you ever said either of these two statements: “I care about my children. I can’t let them hurt themselves by making bad choices” or, “I just don’t want my children to close any doors for themselves that will limit their opportunities later in life?” These are common statements or thoughts when we find ourselves controlling our children instead of giving them choices.

By giving our children choices we are also giving up a certain amount of control over their lives. It is possible that they will make mistakes and have regrets. We must remind ourselves that we learned by making mistakes and having consequences. Encourage yourself to give your child- Room to Grow.


Pearl #6

“CONTROL helps parents satisfy unconscious needs to feel more adequate as adults.

DEMANDS TO GET YOUR WAY help youngsters learn to be stubborn and demand to get their way.

CHOICES help children learn to become decision makers and learn to become adults in the real world.”
