We don't tell oursevles enough that we did a good job.
Is there something that as a mom you have done that you are really proud of? I have 2 dd, one is almost 20 and we have been through a lot and now can talk about ANYTHING. It is not easy for either of us, but some how we get through it. Recently she met a guy she really likes and when he finally told her he liked her too she was so happy, I was too. It has been awhile since her last bf and that was really an ugly situation. Anyway seems this new guy is looking for one thing only. To be friends with beneifits. Now I know from piog that that is a hot topic. Any way, for her it is something she is NOT interested in doing. If she is going to have sex with some one it will have meaning and at some level some commitment. This guy doesn't want to hurt her so now they are just friends and "he acts like nothing every happened". But the point of this is, she told me about it, and I know it was not easy for her to do. I am so proud of her and myself for all those years of talking to her and getting her to understand things, and now I am seeing what a wonderful person she is becoming and that I had my hand in it! So good job to me! What about you guys? What are you proud of in your parenting?
