  1. Wise advice, Tara. I have a teenaged daughter. Sometimes there are rough patches, but I know when she goes off into the world some day I will miss her dearly and cry my heart out. I want to know that that time will get easier too:) Great writing!!


    1. When my oldest, my daughter, left home to attend college, all the angst (on both our parts), was worth it. I’m so proud of her, but it was hard to watch her head out on her own.
