How good a job did your parents do raising you?

I was just standing out in the beautiful sunshine pondering life. Somewhere along the line I picked up morals. I had a few rough years but came out of it unscathed. I might not have if my parents hadn't been so wonderful. I would give them a 9 out of 10. I'd give them a ten but I think all parents make a few mistakes along the way. How about you how did your parents rate?

I think my parents did an excellent job. My brother and I have good core values and excellent work ethic. We take care of our obligations.

Work ethic seems to be becoming a thing of the past. I think your parents did an excellent job too.

I find this post very interesting. Thank You. I can see by your rating and your comments that you do know how lucky you are. I am not so nearly lucky and only rate my parents at about a 4 out of 10. I have allowed 2 points for not letting me go hungry and a 2 for turning me over to grandparents at birth. I would rate my grandparents considerably higher. I am very proud of the wonderful mother I was and still am and I'm considered a very cool grandma and you know what maybe this was Gods plan for me that I may be a good person today. Therefore I Thank God and forgive my parents. Thank You.

Sometimes the greatest gift a parent can give is different parents. It is lucky your grandparents were so wonderful which in turn made you a good mother and grandmother. Life has a way of working out doesn't it.

My parents are the most revered one on this planet. I dont see any one comparable with my parents. My parents are the most caring parents of this world. I think the way they brought me up is wonderful. Taking guidance from them I am also trying to become a good father.

I think with great parents as role models you in turn will be a great father. Enjoy fatherhood.

I would also say 9 out of 10. I think they could've been more affectionate, but on the whole they did a good job. Of course, people make bad choices and my brother did that, but he's done much better after he got thru those teens and early 20's.

Bad choices indeed, been there, did that, and like your brother pulled out of it because of good parents.
