Are you a better or worse mom than your own mother?

While I think I'm a really good mom, I don't know that I'll ever compare to my own mom. In my opinion, she's as the best mom in the world. I got really lucky. :)

  • My mom didn't know how to be a mom, she was more of a dictator and what she said went. I vowed I would treat my boys with love & respect and they are 24 & 20 and we're very close. So to your question, I am 1000 times better than my mom! :)

  • I think I'm a good mom. My kids love me and want to be around me all the time. My dad says they are happy and healthy so I'm doing what I'm supposed to do. That said, I don't feel like I'm better than my mom. She is amazing and I love her dearly.

  • My mother did the best she could with the knowledge she had at the time, that is all I could expect from her, and that is all I expect from myself.

  • My kids tell me all the time "You are the BEST mom in the world!" I think that is what matters - what your kids tell you. Not what I think.

  • My mom was often too busy for us. She was a good mom and worked her ass off for us, but didn't spend any one on one time with any of us.

    I make sure to spend lots of time with my boys and they are always my first priority. I do think that makes me a better mom.
