Security And Strength

"As parents we need to try to find the security within ourselves to accept the fact that children and parents won't always like each other's actions, that there will be times when parents and children won't be able to be friends, and that there will be times of real anger in families.

"But we need to know, at the same time, that moments of conflict have nothing to do with whether parents and children really love one another.

"It's our continuing love for our children that makes us want them to become all they can be, capable of making sound choices.

"Confronting our feelings and giving them appropriate expression always takes strength, not weakness. It takes strength to acknowledge our anger, and sometimes more strength yet to curb the aggressive urges anger may bring and to channel them into nonviolent outlets.

"It takes strength to face our sadness and to grieve and to let our grief and our anger flow in tears when they need to. It takes strength to talk about your feelings and to reach out for help and comfort when we need it." ~Mister Rogers
