Written for Education of the Exceptional Child; Lesson 9: The Gifted

All You'll Ever Need to Know About Raising (teaching!) Teenagers

My children are grown;
I'm an expert --at last!
Three rules, as a parent,
I've held hard and fast.

Let go of the apron strings.
Give them a gentle tug.
Hang on for dear life.

These commandments are simple;
There's no need for ten--
You just must decide
Which rule applies when.

Addendum for Chris

I taught a child today
whose hand must be held
to keep mind and body
from spinning
in self-absorbing circles.

Most children cast off
the apron strings
as they find themselves.
For Chris, they are lifelines
giving him a tenuous link
with a reluctant reality.
