Years ago a shift happened, but I didn't notice it then.
At some point my parents stopped asking me leading questions to which they had an answer and started feeding me conundrums without conclusions. I didn't notice because discussion was a common element of our household. But yesterday, hanging out with my mom, I suddenly realized that we've recently had several discussions where she really wanted my input.
Growing up continues to provide interesting experiences.
As you discuss things with your kids, have you noticed this shift? If you have older children, was it a conscious change for you?
