Hey mylotters, so do you think that your parents raised you right and made very few mistakes or what? Do you think that they gave you a good foundation for living? Please tell me about it, let's talk about it and let's see how everyone grew up. Thanks.....

I do believe my parents reared myself and my sister up in the way we needed to be. They made mistakes, most notably my dad. But he did what he could. He was under a lot of pressure to make a living, and he had so many responsibilities. But they both gave us moral values, a strong spirit, and showed us how to take personal responsibility for our actions.

Yes, my parents did a pretty good job of raising me although I didn't appreciate some of it while I was growing up. I'm the oldest of four and both of my parents worked so I learned to be responsible early. There were expectations that had to be met, no excuses allowed, and that has helped me throughout my life as I worked towards achieving my goals. They also taught me to accept people for who they are, that the only person I can change is myself. They taught me that prejudice is ugly, that there is always room for compassion and caring, that a smile and a kind word costs nothing but the rewards can be great.

I think my mother did a pretty good job of raising me with good morals. She taught me to consider other people's feelings, and not to do anything to anyone if I wouldn't want someone to do it to me. We weren't very wealthy, but we weren't too poor either. She always made sure there was food in the cupboards, even though we still had to ask before we could get anything to eat. And I also believe, that she taught me to do well with my money. I have made a few mistakes here and there, but altogether I think I am doing pretty good for myself. I believe that is because of the way that she raised me.
