As I close my eyes and drift away to a land where there is love, health, peace, and blessings. I wanted to take the time to think and reflect.
I always remember reading the book Annie John, by Jamaica Kincaid. A little book that describes the essential bonds between mother and daughter. During the teen years we might see a child rebel, this should not mean detachment, although it is part of the natural process. It is intrinsically linked to attachment. Teens are still growing and maturing. They still need attachments from parents, care-givers, guardians, siblings, friends, peers, or educators. We must allow this process to take place, always fill the hollows with loving kindness, self-worth, and validation. Kincaid's book definitely exemplifies this, or as the New York Times reviews, "prophetic power".
