  • Thanks George. I have nothing to worry about, except I wonder what the kids are up to, How are the grandkids, Eldest daughter is now the proud owner of a drag car. Is she going to race it? Our Grandson, now a teenager. My wife is on crutches. Working long hours in the business. Still it is nothing to worry about.

  • I deal with some parents who do not care and do not worry and there is a stark difference between those who care and worry and those who don't. I prefer people with a heart and those people create more people with a heart. Out of all this care, concern and worry we create some beautiful bonds. Thank you for this lovely show.

  • We worry because of our concern, love, and care for our children. This could be normal as we are responsible parents, although worry and fear drain our energies. However, there will come a time that our children will realize and feel on what we had shown for them. This is a wonderful presentation.

    Worry Worry Presentation Transcript

    • Please click each slide to advance > Click to view in animated form + music
    • Is there an imaginary cutoff period when offspring become accountable for their own actions? Is there some wonderful moment when parents can become detached spectators in the lives of their children and shrug, 'It's Their life,' and feel nothing?
    • When we were in our twenties, we stood in a hospital room waiting for doctors to put a few stitches in our son's head and we asked, 'When do you stop worrying?' The doctor said, 'When they get out of the accident stage..' We just smiled faintly and said nothing.
    • When we were in our thirties, we sat on a little chair in a classroom and saw how one of our children taunted other students, disrupted the class, and was headed for a career making license plates. As if to read my mind, a teacher said, 'Don't worry, they all go through this stage and then you can sit back, relax and enjoy them.' We just smiled faintly and said nothing.
    • When we were in our forties, we spent a lifetime waiting for the phone to ring, the cars to come home, the front door to open. A friend said, 'They're trying to find themselves. 'Don't worry! In a few years, they'll be adults. 'They'll be off on their own they'll be out of your hair' We just smiled faintly and said nothing
    • By the time we were 50, we were sick & tired of being vulnerable. We were still worrying over our children, but there was a new wrinkle.. Even though they were on their own We continued to anguish over their failures, be tormented by their frustrations and absorbed in their disappointments.. and there was nothing we could do about it. We just smiled faintly and said nothing.
    • Our friends said that when kids get married we could stop worrying and lead our own life. We wanted to believe that, but we were haunted by our own parent's warm smiles and their occasional, 'You look pale. Are you all right' ? 'Call me the minute you get home'. Are you depressed about something?'
    • Our friends said that when we became grandparents that we would get to enjoy the happy little voices yelling Grandma! Papa! But now we find that we worry just as much about the little kids as the big ones. How can anyone cope with all this Worry?
    • Can it be that parents are sentenced to a lifetime of worry? Is concern for one another handed down like a torch to blaze the trail of human frailties and the fears of the unknown? Is concern a curse or is it a virtue that elevates us to the highest form of earthly creation?
    • Recently, one of our own children became quite irritable, saying to us, 'Where were you? I've been calling for 3 days, and no one answered I was worried.‘ I smiled a warm smile. The torch has been passed.
