This really resonated with me, Rachel. My kids are two and six and I realize that sometimes the temptation is to tell them what to do but even at their young ages, they surprise me with how capable they are of making choices for themselves and being true to themselves. My oldest is a born leader and has tremendous confidence, which is something I never had as a kid. When I let go of my own expectations and relinquish some of my parental power to her, she astonishes me every time.
