Unrealistic expectations challenge the father-son relationship in "Timothy"
Title character is a tough act for his son to follow in "Discovering Kindness" short story series finale

Timothy story description
Few family dynamics induce more stress than parental expectations that fail to match up with those of their children. Timothy had been the very definition of a perfect son. As an Eagle Scout and eager protégé for his father's auto repair business, he displayed a level of responsibility and quest for achievement that transitioned smoothly into a career of his own. When the time came for his oldest child, Charlie, to follow in his footsteps, Timothy discovers the rebellious teen has dreams of his own. Will Timothy realize he must allow his son to choose his own path or will his obstinacy cause irreparable damage?
