Sometimes our near grown children become our teachers as they introduce us to fresh ways to do things and creative ideas to embrace. There are moments when we find ourselves talking to sensible, responsible beings who feel like new friends. These wonderful times are followed, sometimes instantly by confrontations with sullen, shouting teenagers who act as if we were the enemy from whom they must escape. Our own feelings grow confused, we feel sympathetic, then resentful, wanting to help them and yet wishing sometimes they would go off somewhere and leave us alone.
