  • Hell NO!!! I don't agree with the way that mother disciplined us and I would never do my children like she did us.

  • In a few ways, yes. But for the most part, I'm way different from them.

  • times are different, but I think i love my children just as much as my parents loved me. There are some things I do that my mom did. Homework starts after dinner and tv doesnt get turned on til its done. Bedtimes are enforced. Going to church is non negotiable. I was always hugged before I went to school, they are too. We learn alot from our parents, we just dont realize it.

  • For the most part I do.  The one main thing I do different is I expect my kids to do chores.  I never had them as a kid.  My mom just cleaned up after us (except our rooms which looked like a tornado hit).  I don't allow that.  They all clean up after themselves.  But otherwise my kids have the same childhood I did including all the independence I had running around the neighborhood, going in and out mostly as I pleased, etc.
