  • No, I don't. I don't whip him everytime he makes a mistakes or acts up. My mom and dad when he was around overdid the spanking.

  • not even close...im MUCH more laid back and open with my children...i allow them to be who they are rather than trying to make replicas of myself.

  • My parents spanked, which I strong disagree with. My Hubby seems to want to do everything like his parents did, although he's not perfect either. And I do want some of my family's stuff in there. I think we all pick and choose certain things about our upbringing to pass on with raising our kids. My dad was always too cheap to let me do any extracurricular activities or sports, which I still am bitter about, so I definitely want to foster my children's interests. I hope they at least each pick a sport and an instrument. Something I wish my parents had made me do. I did play instruments, but my dad wouldn't let me play in sports, and I've been dealing with obesity as long as can remember. (thanks, Dad)

  • Yes, quite similar. My parents are balanced, supportive people. I don't do everything the same, but we are very close and my mom shares with me what she would have done differently with me which is very helpful.
