The Job of a Parent

I’ve heard it said that the job of a parent is to work oneself out of the job–to give your child the tools that he/she needs so that needing YOU is no longer necessary.
I’m not sure that’s true.
Because although we’ve reached an age where our children don’t need us to feed or dress them, we never stop being a parent. We never stop guiding…we never stop worrying…we never stop carrying them in our heart wherever we go.
I like to think that is part of the job.
