  • Your Life: Parents who learn to let go give their children wings

    BY CHARLOTTE LANKARD, For The Oklahoman | Updated: 14 hr ago

    Charlotte Lankard: When parents set a child free, it means parents no longer give their opinion unless asked. It means the child is not responsible for the happiness of the parents and it is time for parents to turn their attention to their own lives, interests and friends — and mind their own business.

    Billy Graham DEAR DR. GRAHAM: I hear people talk about having a personal relationship with God, but I don't understand what they mean. I believe in God, but I can't say I feel like I'm particularly friendly with Him. — Mrs. M.D. DEAR MRS. M.D.: Not only is it possible to have a close personal relationship with God, but He actually wants it to happen!

Yet perceived problems are many times resolved far more quickly through the efficient mechanism of market forces than through the imposition of bureaucratic red tape.
