The best piece of advice I can offer parents is be yourself, do the best you can and trust that in the end it will work out the best for everybody. Success is not linear. Many parents, including myself, sometimes forget that getting into the right private school does not guarantee that they are going to get into the right high school, does not guarantee that they are going to get into the right college and that does not guarantee their success. What does guarantee our children´s success is letting our children and ourselves make mistakes and learning from them. So success is not linear. Do the best you can and it will work out exactly the way it is supposed to.

100 Acts of Love: A Girlfriend's Guide to Loving A Friend Through Cancer or Loss

Kim Hamer is the author of 100 Acts of Love: A Girlfriend's Guide to Loving Your Friend through Cancer or Loss, a modern, essential how-to guide offering tips on what to say (and NOT to say), and specific ways to support and love a friend, co-worker or family member who is coping with cancer, loss or any crisis.

Kim Hamer became a widow after her 44-year old husband lost his life to cancer. Their children were 12, 9 and 7 at the time. Before and after her husband’s death, friends and supporters came up with unique, creative and simple ways to help her family. She called them “acts of love” because it’s what they felt like.

Her book is a fun, straightforward compilation of many of those acts. The mission of “100 Acts of Love” is to help everyone understand and embrace their importance in the lives of their friend in crisis and to provide the tools and courage needed to support them in a truly meaningful and helpful way.
