Reflection — January 17th
This proverb offers sound advice, to remember what our parents taught us. But what if… What if the words of your parents are (or were) not garlands and pendants, but unwise words that still haunt you? How do we sift through all the messages we hear, storing the good, and letting go of the bad?
A word I have discovered recently is ‘alloparenting’ — a way of talking about all the people who help us in our early development — the proverbial village that it takes to raise a child.
None of us gets here alone.
Many of us have two loving parents. Many of us have one. Many of us don’t have any.
