Parenting Is All About Making Choices

By Deborah Dragon

Parenting is all about making choices. Some seem small, like what to make for dinner, which park to visit, or which bedtime story to read. Others are bigger – choosing a doctor, a pre-school, an elementary school. Of course, as your kids get bigger, the choices get bigger, until you’re helping them to make choices, and ultimately sending them off into the world to make choices – big and small – on their own.
