Every parent wants to believe their children are little angels who would not do any wrong. This seldom is the case, though. If we thought back to the time we were their age, we sure did some naughty things we never told our parents until years later, if ever did!
Every parent wants the best for their children, and we believe we know what that but more often than not, we must let go and have them make their own mistakes to learn from.
It is hard to do, but this is the only way for them to grow and be their own person.
The story below is a hilarious example of that. I just had to share it with you.
It makes me laugh every time I recall the doctor`s reply when the daughter insists she has never been with a man!
One mother takes her teenage daughter to the doctor. The female doctor asks,” Okay, Mrs.Jones, what is the problem?”
Her mother answers,” My daughter, Darla. She keeps getting cravings and putting on weight, and she is sick most mornings.”
Not wanting to jump into conclusions, the doctor says nothing. She gives her daughter a proper examination.
After that, she turns to the mother and says,” I don`t know how to say this, but your daughter is pregnant. Nearly four months I would guess.”
‘Pregnant?! She can`t be, my Darla has never been left with a man! Right Darla?” the mother bursts out.
She shakes her head and says'” No, Mom! I have never even kissed any!”
So, the doctor stands up, goes to a nearby window, and has the blinds open. She says no word and looks out of the window attentively.
Later, the mother asks,” Something wrong out there, doctor?”
She replies,” Not really. It is just that the last time something like this happened, a star appeared in the east and then three wise men came over the hill. I’ll be damned if I’m gonna miss it this time!”
