To MY children: I will always be here for you. You will always be safe here. I will make sure you are provided for until you should be doing that for yourself. Because I love you I will not be your friend, I will do what's best for you instead. Together we will keep this place clean and repaired. Food will always be available to cook. I do not have deep pockets. I will always let you know I love you even if you might not love me at the moment.

i think that is so funny. i do agree that a mom will do all of those. as a parent unfortunately you have to do things that your child doesnt like, but at some level they know it is for their own good.

This is indeed harsh, but it is something my mom would have said and she loves me with all her heart. I love my children too but I could see the feeling behind this even though I believe it is an extremely hard way to say it. I will stalk you simply means you will be paying attention, and that would freak any teenager out who is doing wrong. My mom would show up once in awhile where I was supposed to be to make sure I was... was it embarrassing, sure was, did it drive me crazy, sure did, but I knew better than to try to pull the crap a lot of my friends did. The wording behind this may be wrong but I have no problem with the idea in general. In this age of under parenting I think some kids would be a lot better off if their parents showed this kind of tenacity.

I can look at this in two ways: as a daughter and as a mother. As a daughter, I would be scared because it seems like a threat. Most probably, I would rebel. I would question whether my mother has genuine love for me or not. As a mother, though, I can understand the emotions only a mother can feel for her child. I want my child to grow up to be a good person. I want him to become better than I ever was. But how do I do that? I'm not sure. I may not be without fault but this is my way of loving.

I think this message is not about love, it's like treating your child as if it were a possession. I do not want to hold my children on a leash. I want to be there for them for support, love, lessons, values, guidance. I want them to fly free with their dreams fulfilled, and when they come home, I'll still be there for them with loving arms.

I'm also a mother and I love my kids. We as mothers have different ways of expressing our love for our children. But upon reading this letter i don't think this mother use the wrong words in expressing her love or she might have no knowledge of what love really means. To embarass and to be the worst nightmare of our children will drive them away from us. Instead, we have to support and guide them and shower them with unconditional love.For our children are gift from GOD and there are husbands and wives out there who are not capable of having their own child. I am so blessed to have kids and they are my heritage from GOD.

I am a mother and I love my children more than anything in the world. However, I don't think that saying I will stalk my children and be their worst nightmare is correct at all. Instead, when my children get a little bit older (they are 7 and 4 right now), I think that it will be very important to have an open lines of communication with them. This is what my mother did for my siblings and myself and now all three of us are responsible adults, but we never hated our mother.
