The Astute Art Of Parenting

By Stanley Collymore

There’s more to parenting than being a mother
who, whether consciously or accidentally so, 
conceives and subsequently delivers into
a world of uncertainty the helpless 
infant she’s successfully carried
for its full term, with or minus
the physical presence, moral 
or the financial support 
of a biological father.

For true parenting primarily embodies
the inculcation of those essential values
which irrevocably prepare that once
fragile child for the robustness of
adulthood; and you Teri, tender
in years as evidently you are
yourself, seem to have 
already detected and 
truly mastered
that art!
