What are we suppose to do, when our kids that we
love - turn out wrong? We gave them birth, we gave
them love, but somewhere along the line - that was
When the kids are little they step on our toes, but
when they grow up - they step on our hearts.
What are we suppose to do?
As parents; we want the best for them. We want to
give them what we didn't have and what we can.
We keep them close to us, but they grow up and
think that they are their own boss.
Not all the kids turn out bad. Some of them give their
parents great content and make their parents proud
of them. The ones that don't - who do we blame?
When they go wrong and we know that we have
tought them right, what can we do? Should we just
grin and bare it, or just pray for them? They are our
kids. We can't just abandon them...
