At some point (probably when they’re about 6 months old, to be honest) it’s their life, and you’ve got to just let them live it. It’s hard, though. It’s hard not to say, “I already made that stupid mistake, and here is how I think YOU should go about avoiding it.
It is hard not to be frustrated, though, but I don’t think that actually helps anything.
Anyway — now I’ve said too much.
