Do you notice your mother coming out in things you say or do with your children?
Thankfully I don't too much because she was an abusive woman. I want better for my son and am fighting to give it to him.

Sometimes I do. But not so much, because me and DH have agreed on a certan parenting things...and they are different than my mom's.

Yes I think it happens to all of us. Most of the time it seems to be the things we dont like about mom. Once in awhile its something I did love about her. I try and have succeed for the most part to bury the bad and not let it into my parenting.

I am a bit shocked at times how much I do mirror my mother and father.

I would say that I somehow unconsciously adopted her "go ahead and see what happens" attitude. It used to bother me like crazy as a kid growing up. It felt like she didn't care when she would say, go ahead...jump of that cliff and see what happens!

It was a mind game!

Yet...from this I allow my children to make their own mistakes and fall down as needed. I do it from a point of love and I still don't know if that is what our mother meant by this saying all the time.

I would like to think so.

She did love us.

Yes, some things. Mostly in the form of worrying about how things will go or what someone will think. But I am definitely breaking the chain on some other things. Open communication is most important to me.

I do with being anal on cleaning but I am by far not like her raising kids she wasn't horrible but she wasn't the best either. Makes me sad thinking about it *Sigh*

Oh yes.  I find myself repeating things she said to me and that I swore I'd never say to my children.
