This year I will (honestly) cut the cord and treat my children as my best friends, instead of my children.  At ages 22 and 24, they are wonderful young adults whose parents raised them with strong morals.  I must respect them as adults who have their own ways of doing things, stop being an attorney mother, must stop constantly advocating for them, and learn to just listen. Should they ask for advice, I'm always there to give it.
