i know that i have always heard the saying that parents want their kids to do much better than they have, and i think that all parents feel that way honestly but i was just wondering if theres things that you did in your past that you may not want your children to do, because i know that there are things that i have done that i wouldn't want my children to do, but i was talking to someone today and they said that theres nothing that they did that they wouldn't want their children to do...so let me ask you all something is there anything that you have done that you may not want your children not to do...(you don't have to tell us what it is) thanks for taking the time to read my discussion and i hope that you all have a great night!

There isn't anything that I did that I wouldn't want my kids to do...I want them to experience all that they can..... When I was growing up I was told by my grama that she had people watching me, so I better behave...well I was always good...never got into trouble because I feared my grama... I've always told my kids (ages 25 and 20) to use their manners...and to make good choices in whatever they choose to do....

There are a few decisions,situations, experiences and other things which i don't want my children to do or to experience.One is getting married when both are financially unstable.Another one is if they have the chance to work, specifically my two girls, they should work.If not for the money at least for their own self development.Also if they are to plan a big family, spacing between children should be short to avoid age gap between siblings.
