A friend asked me to listen to a radio conversation about this….
Should a parent share her pain with her own children?
Would it help?
Would it wound?
Would it open walls?
Would it cleanse?
Would it explain?
Should a parent share his pain?
For when I kept silent, my bones wasted away through my groaning all day long.
Every man has his secret sorrows which the world knows not; and often times we call a man cold when he is only sad. –Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
