I am not sure that I ever expected or required anything — and I mean anything — from my kids other than that they be kind and respectful.
So now I'm thinking I totally screwed up on this whole parenting thing and I need a complete do-over.
If there were some magical fairy who could grant me this ultimate parenting do-over, here are a couple of things I would actually change:
I realize most of this all of this is my fault, but I thought I was doing things right and that I was a good mom. I'm pretty sure I'm raising good children. Kind children. Respectful children. But am I also raising lazy, thoughtless children who will not be well-prepared to care for themselves when they get out into the real world? This is my real worry. And it's all my fault. I have done this to them and at the ages they are now, is it too late to teach them anything different?
And what if they raise my grandchildren to be lazy too?
Just what I wanted. But then again, it will be a nice "payback" for me!
