Playing around with the beautiful evening sun and the shadows.
Yesterday I wrote about how I try to watch my kids without them noticing. Well, at least sometimes. It is one meaning of “Shadowed”.
I think it is an important part of being a parent. And a tricky one as well, as it is keeping this balance between being a helicopter parent and letting them discover and experience on their own.
Shadowed… My kids must feel shadowed…
I watch them, although I don’t want them to feel watched. But it is what mothers do, what parents do. We try to watch over them without giving them the feeling of being watched, we follow them to make sure we will be there just in case.
