Do you have a good relationship with your parents?Do you think you will model that relationship with your own children?

Yes, I have a fantastic relationship with my parents, and so does my husband.  In fact, he has a better relationship, and is closer with my mom and dad than he is his own.

I pray I can have the same kind of relationship with my kids (and their spouses) as DH and I have with my folks.

I have a wonderful relationship with my parents! My mom and I are best friends and I can talk to her about anything! I have a possible inner ear infection and they took my oldest DS for the afternoon so I could rest. They always offer to help and are great with my kids! My boys adore there grandparents and they are there favorites! I could go on and on about my parents all night long!! They are such wonderful people and a great example to my DH and I, and our boys!!!

I have a great relationship with my step dad but not so great relationships with my mom & bio dad. I hope to have a closer relationship with my daughter then I do with my mom.

I don't have that great of a relationship with my parents, unfortunately. I'm actually closer to my step-mom and my MIL than I am with my own mother. She and I have totally different approaches on life in general. Being pregnant with a girl, I feel like this is my chance to form that emotionally satisfying relationship that is lacking with my mom!

My father is deceased .but i was always called ''daddy's little girl'' I was devastated when I lost him.  My mom isn't and never has been the maternal type and I really want that. I had an Aunt who kind of stepped in and did what she thought my mom should have done. Just to prove my point- I had a cerclage placed on jan6th and she didn't come to the hospital , ( hubby offered to pick he up /let her spend the night with us but she came up with an excuse, I have gotten 1 text messafe from her since the surgery-not even a phone call. My last pregnancy my baby was born premature and hse wouldn't even come to the hospital, 3 years ago my brother broke his back and I had gallbladder surgery the very next day, she never came to see either one of us, she came a week later and stayed the night  but left at 8 am the next day. I have tried to except the way she loves us but it hurts sometimes. I have three adopted sons and I am always their for them and try to talk to them about their day and make sure to spend time with them one-on one as often as possible. They are now teenagers so sometimes I could tie them to a tree LOL but they are mine and I will ALWAYS put them before anything or anybody even me.

I live out of state and remain in a VERYclose relationship with my parents, both of whom I see a few times per year. I talk to my mom at least once per day on the phone, and Dad probably three times per week.  We are close to my father-in-law, who lives 5 hrs away. We see him 1x per week and I talk to him 1 or 2x per week on the phone, independent of my husband. Unfortunately, we lost my mother-in-law one year ago. We were close to her and she was love and is very missed.
