Acceptance of your adult children’s decisions

Are you accepting of other’s beliefs?

What if it is your own child? Understand there is a difference between accepting, condoning and supporting another person’s decisions. Siminlar to Pastor Robert Browning, I accept things that I do not agree with many times. I do this because it is beyond my control to change them. And if we accept the ‘person’ does not mean your acceptance should be misunderstood as an endorsement. However, I must ultimately accept what I cannot change, even my youthful adult children’s lifestyle choices.

How about you? Are you accepting?

Parent with intent!
