was it spoiling your kids. Or perhaps not paying attention when they tried to talk to you. Or maybe it was not preparing them properly for the world out there. What would you do differently with your children if given the opportunity?

my biggest mistake as a parent was been to strict. I was very hard on my son I sent him to the corner very often. If I had it to do again I would be more loving and less judgmental.

I'm a single parent and I need to work very hard for my two kids. I guess my biggest mistake for them is I have no time to guide them in their studies. I go home late and no time to check their assignments and sometimes Imiss some of their school activities. I got a tutor for them to help them in their studies but I guess, it is not enough. They need me personally to guide them. If given a chance or opportunity, I want to have a home business so that I can always be at their side. I know that presence of a parent is very important to mold your children to be a good person/citizen. I hope I'm not yet late for that.

Are you a parent? Because you didn't answer this one yourself. I am not sure what my biggest mistake was, I would say it was consistency, some of my no became yes and sometime something he did would bother me more than other times.
