Even though the object is to help them, there has to be a time to let go

Don't Pamper

There is no doubt that among those many jobs as a parent
Is to create and even sustain that stable and warm environment
That is very important and influential in the children’s development
This and other element in the blend must be a good complement

But as times progress some seem not to know when to let go
And so they find themselves where they become more like a doer
So the offspring come to be so dependent and will instead
Resigned to a type of living where they expected to be spoon fed

That will to try to ensure that the children enjoy a better standard of living
Quite contrasting to the one that they were brought up in their time in
But as time progresses this may prove not to be such a good choice
Because this later may prove to them to be a very greatly paid price

In time this may cultivate in them and so there is no concealment
That no matter what they have that right and spirit of entitlement
And so despite the season or the severity of the economic climate
Their needs and preferences are above all else should be immediate

We are living now in an era where sometimes saying can tend to confuse
And there is that thin line between parental authority and abuse
This too helps to complicate the situation of where to draw that line
And so parents have to watch the type of force to employ all the time

Children too know the extent and so use to frighten
Their parents into their side of any particular situation
Because they know that on one side they have the protection of the law
And so in a certain situation the parents have to capitulate and withdraw

But those in authority and even the children should understand
That even parents have a finite time to occupy space on this land
And so it is time to grow up and put on that cap of responsibility
Because there will come that time when it is time to function independently


Independent, Release, Steer
