“We are exposed to our immaturity, they become our most accurate mirror of our own lack of emotional development.”

This is an interesting way of expressing the emotional dynamic between parents and their children:

Our children have the power to unleash our egoic behavior unlike anyone else, triggering all of our emotional reactivity.

As, through our intimate relationship with them, we are exposed to our immaturity, they become our most accurate mirror of our own lack of emotional development.

In other words, by inviting us to confront who we are in our relationship with them, our children raise us to be the parents they long for us to become.
