To quote the brilliant Arthur Schopenhauer -
When I was young, I NEVER, EVER thought I would be the type of parent I am now. I would have absolutely insisted that I would be a very cool and laid back, fun mum who didn’t care about rules, never gave lectures and was always understanding, easy going, and of course, best friends with her kids.
I’ve been reading about “the time of the millennial” lately.
When I was a teenager, we didn’t have iPhones or even internet.
I always hear and read about how “repressing” our emotions is very unhealthy.
