That I trusted them, that I encouraged them to explore the world and think for themselves, that I didn't disparage them or downplay their hopes, fears, dreams, etc.
That I tried to give them experiences and memories vs. material things that break and get outgrown. That I loved them every moment of every day, even when they frustrated me.
That I taught them how to go out into the world and be their own person and live independantly. That I allowed them to fail enough that they understood the value of working hard to acheive something.
