A great reminder of the difference between “parents” and “friends”. Well said and with a few, minor details changed, I think I’ll copy and send it to my parents. . . even though they are in their mid-80’s.
Thanks for saying ‘no’.
Thanks for setting a curfew. At the time I thought it was ridiculous. Looking back? It seems pretty damn reasonable.
Thanks for following through. Surrendering the keys to my car sucked…but you said it would happen if I did X. I did X. It would sound trite to say I learned my lesson. I would have done X anyway…butI respected the fact that you drew the line and followed through when I crossed it.
Thanks for making sure we had dinner together every night.
Thanks for not choosing my friends or telling me who or who I could hang out with. Thanks for allowing me to come to those conclusions on my own.
Thanks for not paying me for good grades, but expecting them because you knew I was capable.
Thanks for convincing me to take the typing course. I remain unconvinced…
