Parents have to help their children find an internal balance and to acquire autonomy to make their own decisions. If our children are hesitant or confused, it is proof that they need us. If they sometimes get lost along the difficult path to becoming autonomous, it is proof that they still are teenagers. They must be able to lean on our confidence in them and on our love. The aim is that one day each of them will become fully responsible for him or herself and will live happy in the respect of all human beings.
