No Regrets — 6 Comments

  1. Ginger, this was an awesome post for all parents to read. Even when we don’t follow through as parents, this list can get us back on track. I respect your parenting and can tell that with the Lord’s help, you have done a great job. Blessings to you!

    • Thanks, Elaine. I’d like to think I have taught them well, but you know we all have doubts about our parenting abilities at one time or another. Blessings to you in return.

  2. I love this! Great post. The one thing I don’t regret is helping them chase their passions!
    I’m so glad I let them dance and do it competitively. Ty is a composed confident woman who is not afraid to stand up in front of a thousand people and share her testimony or sit one on one and share the gospel because she spent years dancing in front of thousands of people including world famous choreographers/dancers. It is helping Christian overcome his fears and realize things that God placed within him which he was alway too shy to let out with out it. It’s not easy to get out and dance on that stage all alone and then have experts judge you. He’s learning so much about himself and life just by chasing a passion.

    • That’s a good one, Stacy.

      Let them follow their passions–even if it doesn’t necessarily line up with what you think they should do (as long as it stays Biblical, of course).

  3. Hi Ginger.

    Thank you for your honesty. You might not have everyone agree with you. We do our best. At times it’s hard.

    I’m against medications because I know people who lost their lives to it. Instead of helping it caused more harm than good.

    And I feel sorry for mothers who lost their children to suicide because of prescriptions given to their children.

    All the best to you and your family!

    God Bless!

    • Everyone has to make their own decisions when it comes to meds. It’s a highly personal decision, and one I didn’t make without much prayer, sweat, and tears. But it has made a difference in my son; he’s a much happier child and more productive because of the decision we made.

      I’m sorry people you know have lost their lives.
