Years ago, I watched two full-size birds land on my bird feeder. However, one of them grabbed a beakful of seeds and stuffed them down the other bird's throat. I was shocked that a bird so large needed feeding. Perhaps the bird-mom gave a lesson on where to find food.

Years ago, while teaching my kids at home, we watched at the window while two birds landed on our bird feeder. One bird, (I assumed it was the mother bird) grabbed a beakful of seeds and stuffed them down the other bird. I was shocked. The 'baby' bird appeared full grown to me, especially since he flew to the feeder himself. After mom gave him several servings, both birds flew away. 

What a terrific image for moms. As your children near their teens, you start equipping them to leave the nest and survive on their own.

Counselor Brenda L. Yoder shares ways we can help our kids (and ourselves) through that tough transition.
