“It’s always sunny on the Oregon Coast.”

A couple of days ago I brought a client’s teenage child to the Oregon Coast, from Bend Oregon, to join their friends in a get together. A few days later, I picked them up and brought them home.

One of hundreds of trips like this, over the years, but it brought me immense joy, as always, knowing that I was contributing to a child’s safety in a meaningful way.

I mean, think about it; Do you really want your sixteen-year-old to drive for 5 hours over snowy mountain passes, just so they can get to a beach town?

As a parent and grandparent, we have to “let go” and let our children explore their own expression and ability in the real world, which is a good thing.

It is also a good thing to use reason and caution as we dispense this freedom and give them a real sense that they are valuable and important and cherished while this is taking place.

Freedom, to let our children explore and get into possible mischief with their friends.

Value, knowing that they are worth it, and you deserve the very best.

Would you not agree?
