i know that whenever i was growing up my mom was pretty strict on me and i probably gave her good reason to be i remember a lot of times when i was in trouble and she was really hard on me sometimes, i think that i would be a little more lenient with my child if they don't give me a reason not to be, like if i knew that they had a good head on their shoulders i wouldn't really care to let them go to a friends house and things like that, if i knew the friend and the parents and i trusted the parents and the friend...so what about you are you going to treat your children differently than you was treated? thanks for taking the time out of your day to read and hopefully reply to my discussion, i hope that you all have a great evening and night and the rest of your week is really good as well...thanks!

i am deffinaly raising my kids different then my mom raised me. i never felt like i mattered to my mom or that she loved me. and i make sure everyday i tell my kids i love them. treat them with respect and let them know everyday they are wanted.

it sounds like you are going to/doing a great job to make them know that they are wanted and are always important to you honestly, thanks for taking the time to reply to my discussion!

Hi there jhl930 I think I do treat my kids differently to how I was brought up to a certain extent. I think that the core values are the same but society has changed so much that we have to be careful of who is about and what our kids are doing!!

lol. YES -- my mother is a very good woman she tries to be there for us a much as she can and gives us whatever we need and even what we want but she isn't an affecionate woman. i want to shower my children with love and show them that i want to be able to not only give them what need with tangible items but to show them with emotion as well.
