holding space

I recently read this article explaining the concept of "holding space" for others. It's something that applies to just about any relationship we have in life, but what jumped out at me was how well this describes what I think many of us aim for in our relationship with our children:
"What does it mean to hold space for someone else? It means that we are willing to walk alongside another person in whatever journey they’re on without judging them, making them feel inadequate, trying to fix them, or trying to impact the outcome. When we hold space for other people, we open our hearts, offer unconditional support, and let go of judgement and control."
