It is absolutely true that each of us does the best they can given the tools and time in which they live. That said, we have unprecedented experience and information about how to live…and how are we to use it?
Here are some great thoughts about providing refuge for children in many ways.
Your role is to be your granddaughter’s tenderhearted buddy and champion. You should not take it upon yourself to “improve” her. I assure you, even at the age of 10, the world is already telling her all that’s “wrong” with her.If your granddaughter wants to dress differently, you could help her find clothes that she thinks she looks awesome in. But for this child, her relationship with you should be a refuge, not more of the same.
