Independence

Do you know the greatest gift a parent can give to a child?
Independence. To allow them go out into the world and make their own decisions, travel their own paths.
-Hekate, The Enchantress be Michael Scott, p 212

I believe that my parents is one of the protective parents
They were kind of a dictator when I was in Primary School –they still are, but just sometimes now
They started to negotiate with us –me and my big brother– when I was in Junior High School
And now, I’m still in Senior High School btw, I could feel a bit of that independence

I also believe that my parents are approaching the ideal parents
Yes, they often make mistakes
But they’re working real hard on it
Eventually, I really adore them as parents

I like cars, eventhough I don’t like to know how it works or it’s machines
I like to drive, I started to hold the wheels when I’m in third grade primary school and started to drive for real when I’m in the sixth grade
I made my car –my dad’s carhurt twice
Because of the second time, I stopped driving for almost 2 years
But then I drove again

I’m 17 and I’ve had a driving license
Until now, I’ve drove the car 5 times alonewell, I’m not really alone, but my dad weren’t there so I count it as alone
Maybe it seems natural
But for me, it’s like a signal they’ve started to give me that independence
