Following in our Footsteps.......

Posted by   + Show Post
Are your kids following in the same footsteps through life that you took? Or have they chosen a different path to travel?






What are the differences?

I'm glad that what I said made somesense. whew! :) Yes, I think most parents have the same in their families too. At least we know that in some ways, we are not alone in the failings of our childhoods.

He better not LOL.. he's not my extension. I want him to love what he's doing.

I see so much of myself in my oldest child, and he's the one having so many difficulties in life.  Makes me sad i did that to him.  But he'll come out on the other side so much the stronger.  My other kids aren't quite as mini me as all that, but all 5 of them have taken something from me.

at this point i am not sure. Dd is 4.
at that age i had an older brother and was already in K so my mom could work to support us. My dad was working two jobs to pay off a business loan that his partner, who forged his name & ran off with the cash.
DD has my love of stories and books, but her fathers daring.
i hope i don't become as paranoid as my mother did. she took over protective Ness to mean no privacy.

Would it be so terrible if he was an extension of you ?

Yes. I was sheltered till I got married at 24. I can't do that to him. I can't imagine doing it to him. I got married to be freed not because of love. Do I want my son to be my extension? Big No.

My kids are somewhat like me but more like their dad in most ways.

I see what you are saying. I also apologize if I was prying. That wasn't my intention. I was also sheltered and try not to be the same way with my children as was done with me.

I think a lot of us feel the same way and hope and pray that we are not like what our moms or dada were like.
