Helina Hoyt: A Return to her Roots
Imagine that very first day of school when moms and dads must let their 4- and 5-year-olds take those first steps on the inevitable road to adulthood. The children may or may not want to run free into that classroom. Each child is different, though for the parents, it is never easy. There are hugs and kisses and one last check to make sure they’re settled in and, then the parents must leave, live their lives and let their child begin living his own — increasingly independent from them.
