The Storyteller's Story
Usually it's me telling you a tale with learning point attached. However, this evening when surfing some old files on my Mac laptop I came across this little write up by Catriona. She is recalling one of my less then perfect parent moments...
Teach Them Independence
So I raid my mothers cash stash and buy myself a train ticket to sunny Scotland! I jump on a bus to the station... 4 trains, 3 busses, endless amounts of pringles, magazines and hot chocolates later and the odd sprint across platforms, I finally arrive in Glasgow where my uncle picks me up and drives the rest of the way to Dunoon.
Ohhh yes its all true! I'll never forget the look on my Dad's face either, when my mum came down the stairs with the car keys in her hand, It was priceless!
What's the Moral of the Story?
Well, I never would have had such fun if I'd always used 'Mum's Taxi'
And my P.S? Give your children freedom to explore; to gain independence. One day like me, you might be very grateful you did!
