Today, as we were getting ready Zany asked if she could borrow my white scarf. I know you know how hard it was for me to not scream, “NOOOO!!”, but I looked at her and said, “Hun, you know that’s my favorite. But I guess if it would make your outfit look right, then yes…. just don’t get anything on it, please.”
She responded that she’d just take it off during lunch while I tried not to cringe. 😉
After the kiddos left I saw the scarf laying on my bed. It made me laugh. If I’d have said no to her an argument would have ensued. Instead, I entrusted her with a responsibility she didn’t want to accept.
It was one of those reminders that books don’t solve all parenting problems. That parenting never would have worked on either of the boys – nor on me at that age – but, for Zany, it’s perfect. Yes, my things occasionally get ruined, but all in all, Zany’s becoming a responsible person that thinks through the potentials before accepting a responsibility.
A lesson for us both!
