I loved your letter,i never said i had children, i know your qusetion was directed at parents,i was just making an apinion ,
this is the sweetist thing i have ever heard
: when i moved out my mother gave me one of her old cook books and taped in the back was a poem she had clipped out years ago about a mother's love. the very last line goes: "i loved you enough to say 'no' even when i knew you hated me for it."
"i loved you enough to say 'no' even when i knew you hated me for it."
i agree hole hartedly , whem i become a parent one day,(and i hope i do)
i will not be afriad to say no when i think its needed,my children will know all about the foul plastict that feed millions every day
and i will let them make mistakes,
its was only me and my mom realy,(when growing up)and iam glad my self she said no to me it has made me a stronger person,and a lot more patient,
its just that most of the poeple i see or know are young parents who are children them selfs,and so i guess the child like ego can be directed at them
