Don't allow your children to manipulate you through guilt. You are all in this together-a team-and must work together. Don't let your kids' immaturity cause you to question your ability as a parent. Realize they are still kids growing up and don't fully understand everything. It may be years later, after they have grown up and left home, before they realize the strength and courage you possessed to undertake parenting alone. So straighten those shoulders and realize you are the adult who is making decisions based upon your child's and your best interests.
