Angst and the Suspicious Parent
"Denial is not just a river in Africa" -Oprah. (I think!)
Bloggy friends, if someone told you something bad about your child, would you immediately believe them? or would you say, "It's just not possible"?
I believed them. I spent months trying to get to the bottom of it.
But the accusations weren't true.
What is worse, letting your child get away with lies and wrongdoing because you love them and trust them completely, or looking askance at them and trying to catch them in a lie when they have been telling the truth all along?
Parenthood. It ain't easy.
