  • What did I do FOR my children?? It is more what I HAVEN'T done for my children. I haven't allowed them to go into the world as adults without knowing how to do laundry, dishes, clean a bathroom, cook several meals from start to finish, etc. They can manage their money, they can socialize with their peer group, they know that alcohol is to be consumed as a legal adult and in moderation and never when driving, etc.

  • i agree with twinsplus2more, the best thing you can do for them is teach them how to survive in the real world. Make sure they know how to cook, do laundry, manage their money, clean, when to and when not to drink and so on. I don't have adult children yet but I wish my mom had done more of that with me before letting me go out into the world. I can't cook I'm not very good with cleaning, so I'm trying to learn while having two toddlers to take care of.
