Let it ride, let it go, go with the flow. That right there is a solid gold tenant of successful parenting, and may successful living overall.
Of course there are times when you need to lean in and insist on an agenda, actions, compliance. That’s definitely true.
That said, I suspect learning when to go with the moment, with the established momentum, learning that lesson, and then applying it, APPLYING IT, that’s where the trick is, that’s where the wisdom hides.
Knowing that you need to do it. And then knowing when to do it. And then?
JUST DO IT.
