I think this is an interesting topic. At what point are kids considered grownups? Where does the parenting stop, if ever? What if you really try but your child just won't quit with drugs or get a job and pay for themselves? At what point do you say to hell with it? I think it goes without saying that we all love our children. Is there such a thing as a black sheep? How was it in your family?

Nope- my parents were both good, strict, involved parents. I still made bad choices. Then I learned from the bad choices, & I grew up to act responsibly. My bff has 3 kids. Her 2 girls are turning out wonderfully. Her son on the other hand is a drop out & drug addict. It's so sad. But I know she did the best she could. His father on the other hand is another story. Then you have my children. My middle son has given me fits w/ certain behaviors & lack of concern for others but himself. I don't know where he gets that, except from his dad. (he passed, so I won't speak ill of the dead - but the stories I could tell!) I don't think it's just the nurture part that makes the person. There are other factors that make them who they are & make them act the way they do. We can only do our best & hope w/ maturity, they will finally get "it" & be successful.
