  • That he will join the military. Please don't bash me.. I have nothing but admiration and respect for those in the military.. but I am a big-ass chicken and I can't stand the thought of my son putting himslef in danger... even to protect me or anyone else.. I will accept that I am selfish... and I gladly give all of the props to those wives and moms out there who are brave enough to deal with it. I totally respect you.

  • My biggest fear for both of my boys, is they get caught up in relationships too early and loose site of their goals and dreams. I worry girls will take over their mind andemotions.
    Both my boys are leaders and have strong personalities and good heads on their shoulders. They have walked away from my friends who do not. I trust them to make wise choices. My youngest is 12 and no longer friends with those he found out were smoking and drinking when they were 11. My older son is 16 stopped hanging out with friends that have drinking and having sex since they were 14. I don't worry too much about them, falling into the wrong group and getting caught up in something. They both know there is such thing as the wrong place and the wrong time and need to be careful who they associate with. So my only big fear is getting caught up too early in a relationship.

  • My biggest fear for my oldest is that I will lose him forever, he has moved in with his dad, and I don't get to see him much anymore. For my middle son, is that he will not learn to read properly, he has a lot of trouble, and for my youngest, I fear most that no one will be able to take care of him after I am gone, he is autistic, and I am not sure how his adult care will work out.

  • My biggest fear for my DD is that she will get caught up in a bad relationship and be abused as I did years earlier, into drugs I fear my child will make the same mistakes i once did. That's why I will always be honest with my DD.
