Couldnt we all use a little more of this?

I came across this post randomly. I don't even know how? But I think this woman is incredible. A lesson a lot of people could take to heart. Let your children be who they are, and who they want to be. Is there any sense in trying to force someone to be someone they are not? I don't believe there is. The world needs more of these kinds of parents. People who are willing to love their children no matter what. No matter their struggles, or successes. Let them be happy because they have chosen to be true to who they are. I am so happy to have the most incredible parents. They love all of us so much and support us in our lives. I would not be where I am today without parents telling me to follow what I love and to be whoever I want to be. My mom still to this day tells me I could be an Olympic swimmer if I put my mind to it. It still makes me laugh. But she truly believes in me. My Dad has always inspired me to pursue my artistic path. He's always giving me that extra lift I need when I am down. I wish that more parents were understanding and supportive of their children. There are so many people putting us down, its awful to have the people closest to you adding to that. I hope that when I am a mother I am like this woman. Fearless and stalwart in raising her cute little boy. :)


  1. i just went and read her post. seriously awesome mom! I felt so bad for the kid being nervous to dress up with his friend as daphne! I couldn't believe some of the negative comments to her post. crazy world we live in. I love how excepting and loving that mom is! I thought it was funny when her comment to another mom was like, "i'm not really afraid your son is going to grow up to be an actual ninja!" (so why should she be worrying about if her son will grow up to be a girl or gay or whatever) so funny :) thanks for sharing m!

  2. I know right! I love the ninja comment! Seriously such a cute little kid! Thanks for reading!
