Reflecting on The Virgin Mary in an age of “Overparenting”
Last month, I was lucky enough to share a few thoughts over at Fem Catholic. Not only was it my first “published” piece of writing since my high school newspaper days, but it was the first time I’d written openly about my own parenting.
If you’re able, I’d love for you to head over to Fem Catholic and check it out!
In the mean time, here’s just a bit of what was on my mind:
“Though we may never be in a position to bribe our child’s way into an elite school, we can reflect on the connection between the actions of the parents involved in the scandal and how everyday moms and dads approach their children’s challenges. In other words, how can we love our children fiercely and still let them experience the inevitable suffering that is part of the human condition?”
