prevent (someone) from accomplishing something.
When you were a kid, I bet you had plenty of ideas swimming around in your head. How many of those ideas became reality? Did you have the kind of parents who let you explore your passions or were your parents the ones who said no more then they said yes.
Now that you are all grown-up, do you ever ponder on their reasoning? I have heard both sides of the coin from parents. Different reasons I heard were, we didn’t have the money. It is just a foolish idea. Yes, I was open to what my child was interested in. How would we feel if we were part of the reason our kids didn’t achieve their dreams?
Do you resent your parents for saying yes or no today? Do you think where you are now is partly responsible for the answers they gave? Let me know your thoughts.
