When I look at my son, it's like looking in the mirror. He looks nothing like me...all dad. But sometimes I feel as though he's my reflection. He struggles...with school, with his emotional well-being and self-esteem. I see myself in him everyday and it makes me sad. I know how hard his life will be...but how do I help him? How can I prevent all the hardship he is sure to endure...I know it. I live it. Will I be able to explain it to him...prevent it somehow? My dad struggled so much with me...did he see himself in me? He's never said. His tactics didn't work with me...he is old-school, Mexican through and through. I will not resort to that. But I want my son to make it, to be someone and I don't want it to come to late. As it has with me.I just needed to talk to someone...and it's easier to open up here.
