Sorry to hear about your heartache. The job of a parent is to give your children the skills and knowledge of how to succeed on their own. It's up to the CHILD to use that information given to them and the parent to continue to GUIDE them. I think everyone has dreams for their children as they grow and when they become adults, sometimes the reality doesn't match the dream. This is not your failure, it's just that each of them become able to assert their free will and sometimes letting go is what they need. Love them, but let them fail...your parents raised you and you made out alright, I'm sure, possibly with a few disappointments? Trust that they will too- sometimes in a more circuitous route than you'd like.
