  • I had a wonderful upbrining, so of course I"m raising my kids that way. I figure if I can do at least HALF as good a job as my parents, then i'm doing good. But everyone is different

  • Opposite....I don't curse and put down my son and beat him. I try to raise his self esteem and make him feel like his thoughts matter and are significant.

  • The reason why I use the word opposite is because, I was not raise the way my kids are being raised.

    I do the best that I could do, and my husband helps me quite abit.

  • I agree with you. That's why I do the opposite, now it seems that she want's to help me as being a mom I think it's because she was not there for my sister and I.
