what is your biggest parenting regret?

mine is I let my son as a toddler have a lot of say and choices in everything we did.  I thought at the time it would give him confidence.  Now at 7 he thinkins he has a choice in things he really doesnt and causes some power struggles.

I would love a do-over.

Anyone else?

I babied my youngest so much. I gave into the crying because I felt bad about the circumstances that brought him here. Now he is 5 and a cry baby. I want a do over too.

Not introducing more varied foods (like spicy, savory, vegetarian, etc.) to our kids at an earlier age, and ever having bought freaking chicken nuggets for them!

I stayed married too many years to their father because I thought that's what I needed to do for my family. How wrong I was!

I gave in to my daughter too much, she was my first and I was very young when I had her so I wanted her to have a perfect everything...now I regret that. She is a little drama queen lol.
