I was just doing a little Spring cleaning this afternoon,and discovered some handmade greeting cards that my daughter had made for me when she was young. Deep emotions welled up from within as I looked through the many homemade birthday and Mother’s day cards that she had created, some with three dimensional moving parts and beautiful poetry. Hallmark doesn’t even come close to the intricacies and care of these homemade cards.
It made me think about the many parents that I have met over the years and how they only wanted their child to be “perfect” at everything. If their child wasn’t the best in academics, or art or music or gymnastics, then something must be wrong with their kid and their kid needed to be medicated or intensely tutored so that they could focus on achieving that perfection. The outcome would usually be disappointment for the parents and shame for the child when this perfection didn’t happen. Or worse, the child crashed and burned from non-stop after school intense activities or from medication side effects.
As a parent of an Indigo child, sometimes we have to take a step back and look at our child from a different point of view. Each child is perfect, whole and complete; and we are the chosen lucky ones that get to raise them. No one knows our children as well as we do. If teachers and professionals say “X” about your child or put a diagnostic label on her, that will still never define her capabilities.
As the parent of two grown Indigo Children, the best thing we can do for our children is love and support them as they find their own way. Not everyone can be a rocket scientist or celebrity. But each of us can be the best person that we can be.
Wishing everyone cherished memories on this special Mother’s Day!
