My husbands parents have a great relationship with him. I'm very lucky to have found that relationship as a lot of my friends dont get along with their inlaws.
As a parent I cannot imagine not loving my kids.
BUT As a parent I look at the relationship with my parents and feel I am not loved....I am tollerated.
I dont have the best of relationships with my parents. (Verrrrrrrrry long post if I went into it so I will spare you)
We pretend to get along...we dont get along. There has never been a big blow out or yelling.
I would love to say I'm the parent I am today because of the way I was raised (in a positive light).
Do you ever hit an age/stage in your life where you accept the parenting you had and the current relationship status....or are you always wanting for more?
