A sense of balance… Our mag­a­zine has al­ways sought to make the best sug­ges­tions for our chil­dren in words and im­ages and this still holds true at the start of the new school year: chil­dren’s fash­ions as orig­i­nal as ever fill our pages, but this is not what at­tracts my at­ten­tion to­day. Find­ing what is best for our off­spring… hav­ing con­sis­tently kept us/you up­dated about the choic­est op­tions, it is now time to re­store the balance to our par­ent-child re­la­tion­ships. Ed­u­ca­tional psy­chol­o­gists point the fin­ger at par­ents who are con­stantly try­ing to en­sure their chil­dren’s hap­pi­ness. Their habit of hov­er­ing around them even has a name: “he­li­copter par­ents”. How­ever, we should not suc­cumb to the temp­ta­tion of al­ways want­ing to give the best of our­selves in the hope that our chil­dren be­come the crème de la crème. Par­ent­ing isn’t some­thing that we work hard at, ex­pect­ing to get a re­turn on our in­vest­ment… This is­sue of pro­poses ways of es­tab­lish­ing the right balance – fairly, po­et­i­cally, good­hu­mouredly! It is up to you to find the cor­rect dose of in­volve­ment to help raise a gen­er­a­tion of com­pas­sion­ate, sen­si­tive hu­man be­ings. MilK Isis-Colombe Com­bréas
