"Wasn't raised that way"

What is one thing you do that goes against the way you were raised?

For me, I look like a total slob compared to how neat and organized my parents were.

  • Oh geez...pretty much everything. My parents weren't the best and I've been known to ask myself what they would do in a situation and do the exact opposite!

  • My father considers it his greatest failure that both of his children grew up to be "left wing nut jobs". Politically, I'm slightly left of center and my brother is marginally more liberal than I am. My dad just happens to share many of his political ideas with a certain Mr. Limbaugh. It keeps thanksgiving dinner interesting, at least.

  • i always felt like when i disappointed or failed my mom, she didn't love me or want me. so every time my dd (almost 3) gets in trouble, i tell her, "i love you so much. what you did wasn't okay. i don't want you to do it again. can i give you a hug now?" ... i never want her to feel like she has to earn love or kindness. i want her to know that no matter what she does... NO MATTER WHAT... i will still be her mommy and i will still love her.
