Slow down turbo were the words that came from my son the guru the wise man the teacher he became.
Dan started out, as many of you know, angry and indulged. If we had done any shrinkage early on, the advice we would have gotten and maybe, I say maybe, we might have taken, would have been So what! he’s got diabetes. No reason for him to get away with murder. He’s manipulating you because you feel guilty.
Well there’s a revelation. A child manipulating a parent who has a big fat wad of guilt sitting on the dresser waiting to be used. We probably wouldn’t have heard it. As it turned out- as Dan got sicker we got less tangled up and more able to let go. And as we let go he got to be the man who was in there growing the whole time.
When I was running around trying to control the world he would say, slow down turbo. And you know what? It helped. I can hear him still. And it still helps.
Prompt: What have your kids taught you? or if it hasn’t happened yet what do you think it will be. And if you don’t have kids how about your students, your nieces and nephews….
