  • My mother inspires me because good or bad, she did her best. My daughters also inspire me because I love them so much and want to do what's best for me. And every other mother I see, because I steal the good ideas and find ways not to do the things I see bothering me.

  • My parents, of course, both the positive & negetive aspects. I think parenting, ultimately, just comes from my gut, good or bad.

  • My grandma. If I followed either one of my parents parenting skills I wouldn't have my kids, they would have been taken from me long ago.

  • I would have to say my deceased ex MIL did. My parents didn't have a lot of time with me nor my children back then. My MIL always saw to it that everything was taken care of.

  • For good things to do and how to raise our children, my adoptive mom and my parents-in-law influence my parenting skills. As for what not to do that would have to be my birth mother.

  • My mom some. She wasn't the perfect mom but who is. I take the fact that she let the small things slide, the when I was mad she'd try and make me laugh rather than yell at me. My grandma on her work ethic for her kids. And my one aunt who ALWAYS made life fun! And still does!
