The Older Children Get, The More They Need You

Lately, as I've been going through different things, my eldest child [who is almost 18], is dealing with similar things.

Learning that people aren't always how they present themselves to be, etc.

I've spent the last 18 years eating right, trying to model proper behavior and attitudes [not always succeeding, but trying], and keeping my children safe.

If you had asked me all those years ago, if by the time they were this age, what my job would be, I would have answered, "None."

Because once they are grown, your job is over, right?

[cackles madly]

Nope. As I am learning, the job changes from being a worker, to being management, to becoming a consultant.

I thought management was hard. Compared to being a consultant, it was a walk in the park.
