  • I try not to make promises I can't keep, but sometimes it happens. I usually make it up to them thought. It still tears me up to break my promises. Thats why I always say "we'll see"

  • I don't make promises, I'm not very religious, but I agree when Jesus said, make no promises, let your yes be yes and your no be no.

  • Always. It's important to me that my children trust me, and know how important it is to keep your word.

  • Yes. I never make a promise I can't keep. I've had my share of empty promises made to me, I refuse to do that to my Son.

  • Yes. And I agree with the other moms. I won't promise him something I know I won't be able to do.

  • I try to do as I say. I rarely ever say to her "I promise", but if I do ... heaven and earth can shift ... I'll make it happen.
