As a mom, especially an overprotective mom, I have that need to shield my teens from anything and everything that can hurt them. Broken glass, boxes of twinkies, school bullies, drunken drivers, burning buildings, pubescent boys who only have their penis and girls' boobies on the brain. But how, how do I shield my teenage girls from their father?
How do I shield them from the man that they remember loving them when they were little? I'm not saying he doesn't love them now. In all fairness, I have to admit, I know somewhere under all that irresponsible, immature, selfish behavior, there's a loving person. Unfortunately, my ex, never truly learned the responsibility of love.
Yes, love comes with responsibilities. Especially when it comes to loving children.
