In some ways yes, in others no.  And I swear my mother thinks I'm crazy every time I do something different than she did.  Or she thinks my kid is gonna end up poorly because of my parenting choices.  I just remind her that I am the mother and I will raise her the way I see fit.  What works for some doesn't work for all.

Nope. My egg donor abused me physically and emotionally. I could never treat my kiddos that way.

It's ok. :) I am a way better mother to my children. So it helped me know how not to treat my children.

I think I'm more laid back than my mom was. She had 2 kids and I have 1.

Sort of. My mom was a sahm, so am I, she didn't spank neither do I.
my mom did great until we were teens. I will be doing things differently when they are teens.

I'm sorry she was abusive to you. That's terrible.
