Over the past five years, I have had the opportunity to experience the responsibility of a parent and the leadership of my children. With guidance from us, as parents, they develop capabilities shaping their own lives, indicating their preferences and asserting their personalities. Overtime, as parents, we adjust to their growth, their strength, until they take their first wobbly step, a sign of greater independence and shared responsibility. In sharing the design of our lives, being attentive to their early steps while reprioritising, parents need to respond to cues, signs and other elements that we discover. This mutual exchange is often about preserving and safeguarding without restricting them from opportunities to learn, fall, recover, and most importantly allow them to be comfortable in their own new world.
