Eighteen years of age.
You’ve made it. More importantly, your little bundle of joy has survived.
Now there are three choices: grow up, grow in, grow out.
Factually, there’s not much you can do about them growing up, although it is possible for them to get mature physically and still be babies internally.
But there is a new trend in America to ask our children to grow in, towards us. We decide to rescue them from life’s inevitable failures by welcoming them back, rent free, into the domicile, quite happy to be Mommy or Daddy once again. This practice has generated a class of people who originally were working but now are still searching, convinced they have plenty of time to assume human responsibility.
Your goal should be to help them grow out.
As quickly as you possibly can, develop an adult relationship with your son or daughter instead of a co-dependency. If you’ve taught them to be human beings by inserting empathy and gratitude into their everyday lives, then you should be confident of seven things that you mutually hold dear. Your child should know:
- I’m no better than anyone else.
- I’m responsible for my own actions.
- I will work with what I have.
- I know that truth is the gold standard in human relationships.
- I look for opportunity, not short cuts.
- I am a heart, soul, mind and strength creature.
- I am fully aware that how I treat people is what I really believe about myself and God.

You haven’t lost an off-spring; you’ve taken eighteen years to mentor a friend. Enjoy them. And as they move about the Earth and realize that these platinum attitudes work, they will sing your praises.
Never forget that bringing creatures into this world is just a part of the biological cycle.
Turning them into human beings is the joy of the truly spiritual.
