When your child becomes a teenager, your role as a parent becomes more complicated...it is about being a friend and a guide..it is about being there when she needs you, yet not visible to the world as a dominant protecter. It is about letting her develop her self esteem & personality. Letting her choose but within safe guidelines. She will make mistakes but only Allah can protect her because she is no longer the little girl you carry around.
It is about gentle persuasion and support.
Can you be that new parent? Can we learn to adjust?
Ya Allah guide us to be the protecters of our toddlers & infants and guide us to be guides to our older children.....
