Thanks for this. How many times did I hear that same question! Your post made me realize that indeed, my son DOES have a special talent: his unconditionnal love for me. Whatever happens, I just can do no wrong. If he sees me cry, he will do anything, even the very thing that he was refusing to do a moment before (thus making me cry), to see me feel better. His 14-year-old heart is simply made of gold.
