    Answer by Mom2Just1 at 8:24 PM on Oct. 1, 2010

  • Yes... for so many reasons, but here's a practical one - she and my dad made it a goal to raise us without "baggage" to carry when we were older based on their decisions.

  • Yes for the most part. There are a few things I wish she had done differently, but all five of her kids are relatively normal productive members of society.

  • No

  • Good to know that there are people that appreciate their moms. My mom however, was not a good mom. I had my basic needs but there was no nurturing or guidance what so ever among other things.

  • My mom is a good woman and I am thankful for her. She is loving, kind, patient, caring, creative, thrifty and full of spunk!

    Answer by MaryWolfe at 8:29 PM on Oct. 1, 2010

  • She was the best that she knew how to be. She didn't make the best decisions for us but, me and my sisters are not ruined from it and we are all very close.
