We’ve all heard the infamous line “I can’t wait for you to have kids… then you’ll see…” from our parents or guardians. We have, because we all put them in situations that very likely warranted the comment.
The fact of the matter is that you either resented the situation or punishment you received and swore to never be like that/them, or you grew to understand where they were coming from and apologized later (or want to.)
For this week’s Round Table Discussion, I want to know which one it is.
The question will not be easy to answer or explain, so do both:
Give us an example of why you think the way you do, and tell us—did you follow closely in your parents footsteps when it comes to raising your child(ren) or did you roll as far away from the tree as possible? Who do you think are the better parents?
