  • I never did. I disagreed with my own upbringing and it didn't make sense to me to ask her for any help in raising my own.

  • Sure. I figure she raised 4 kids, she might have an idea on what to do.

  • I think it's so great that you have a mom to turn to when you need sound counsel. Unfortunately I don't share that ability with you - but I will say that in the absence of having a helpful mother to turn to, I have done everything in my power to make sure that my kids can come to me and trust what I say if the need arises. So some good has come from it after all.

  • Sometimes..more when he was an infant however the whole time she's only been able to tell me " wow honey, I'm not sure.. this child doesn't go by any book in the world out there " which isn't all that helpful

  • Not very often. I don't agree with how she raised my brother and I so I don't ask her for much advice. We don't agree on how I parent my son. According to her, I am too lenient because I don't spank him for every little thing. I prefer to teach my son how to act apppropriately instead of just hitting and screaming at him.
