My daughter and my son-in-law came over to visit with us last night. We had a really nice visit. My son-in-law is still looking for work, so he brought his laptop and filled out some online application forms. I sure hope he finds something soon. My daughter and I had a good visit. I enjoy talking with her. She has grown very smart in her 25 years. I was surprised they were here until almost 10pm. We haven't had a visit like that in such a long time. While I was talking with my daughter, I realized how much she shares the same values I have. What values do your kids share with you?

Thank you Summer, it was a great bonding experience in my opinion. I was able to learn so much more about my daughter I never knew.

My kids are all still in school. But do hope that everything that have taught them, most especially about how to deal with other people, should stick to their minds and heart. I never wanted them to be overly confident about themselves. have always told them to humble themselves no matter how much they think they have better lives than others. And I have always told them to help other people as much as they can and not wait for anything in return.

Hello Jenny! You want them to be confident but not to confident where they are smug. Understandable. You are a good parent.

Thanks, Arieles! You're so sweet! All parents would only want the best for their kids. And no matter how life can be imperfect, I'd like them to make life as perfect as they can.

i have two kids, a girl and a boy, 22 and 20 years old, respectively. it's my son that shares most of the values i have. the daughter shares a few. what the children are, are part and parcel of what the parents have. i hope every parent learns this important aspect.

My oldest daughter probably has the most values like mine. She parents a little differently, but I respect her choices and I will honor them the best I can. Thank you, I sure hope my SIL finds a good job soon, I want them all to be happy.

Thank you Maria, I hope he finds employment soon as well. They both left very good jobs to come home and I want to have my grandson near me so I can get to know him and he; me. Prior to this I only saw him once and that was when he was nine months old. He's 15 months old now. They are in Traverse City today and looking for work. I'm sending out all kinds of positive vibes.

I'm still planning to have my own family and to have beautiful kids someday. I share with them good values so that they will grow with respect and love for their parents.

That is really sweet Mary. Kids are a blessing. Good values are not easily taught these days with so much interference from other devices (music, tv, people, friends, other family members, etc..) but if you have a goal to raise your family with good values, it will happen for you.

Both of my children are still pretty young, so I really feel like the values that they are going to hold throughout their life are still very much in development. However, when it comes to my daughter, I can see that she does share a lot of characteristics with me. First of all, and I noticed this when she was still a preschooler, is that she is a very empathetic person. Another thing that I've seen in her that I see in myself is that she is a person that genuinely does care about the well-being of others.
