The Parenting Tango...

Two steps forward.
One step back.
Try not to let your heart get stepped upon
too many times...

Every fear,
Every pain,
All the outcomes your too-vivid imagination can dredge up...

Please guide my feet so I can guard my heart.
I cannot let him be trampled upon...

"I'm concerned about your son..."

Labels and stereotypes.
Cold-shoulders and bullies...

How can I protect what I must release into the world?
