Growing up my mother (in my mind) used to be very mean to me. I was closest to my dad and my brother was close to her. Now that I am a mother myself I see myself walking in her shoes and it's scary. I am naturally a pretty strick parent however, I find myself getting irriated easily with my kids (who are two years old) and sometimes I am just flat out detached. My mother ended up leaving us when I was 13 and I still struggle with the effects of that today, especially as a mom. I am scheduled to talk to a therapist but I just don't want to end up to my kids like she is to me. No matter how good she is now to me, I always carry what she did to me in the back of my head. I need advise!Answer Question
