All of John O'Donohue's books

 "I frequently say 'I trust you' to my children in moments I am not sure they will make the right choice.

Because my goal isn't perfect choices, it's for them to learn to make their own choices.

It's for them to learn to trust their own intuition,

and their ability to take care of themselves regardless of the outcome."

- Tory Eletto
