“You never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have.”
As a parent, there is a lot I don’t know. I don’t know much of Sprout’s history. I don’t know what their future will hold or where they might be next month. I don’t really know the dark demons that live in my little boy’s heart. I don’t always know the best way to respond to behavior challenges (let me tell you, this child thinks of things that aren’t in any parenting book). I don’t know the right answer to all the questions I’m asked. I don’t know if I say the right things or if I do the right things. Heck, I don’t even know how long I’ll be able to call myself a parent.
But, what I do know is that my love is stronger than his anger. And that’s all I need to know to get up tomorrow and do it all again.
