  • Same here - my temper. Unfortunately, I think it's already too late for my 3yo, who shows A LOT of my characteristics including that one. :-/ I've been better with my younger one, though, so hopefully she can learn to be more patient than I am.

  • I hope that she is nothing like me. I am sure I have some good traits but I of course don't see them. My Partner does but... I don't.

  • I hope my children dont get my lack of patience. I've calmed down since I had children but I used to be like a time bomb.

  • Mental health issues. I have suffered from clinical depression and generalized anxiety since childhood... I hope my kids don't go through that. I worry about my son the most because, temperament-wise, he seems to be the most like me in that sense.
