I told you to wear a blouse over those spaghetti strap t-shirts now put them in the laundry, and I will show you a disappearing trick. I am okay with you not liking me , and I will still think that you're wonderful - all eight of you. I have to answer to God for my parenting skills or lack there of , and how you turn out will be the result of your own choices. I am only responsible for how I parented - not how you turned out. Get it? What you do with the information that I gave to you is something that I can not control.
Parenting is the only job in the world where the amount of effort that you put into your work isn't necessarily reflected in the end result.
In school you can work hard and get an "A" , but with parenting you can work hard , and still feel like a failure.
A - "I wanna stand on a ledge" - kinda failure.
Even so keep in mind that parents are people too, and we make mistakes hopefully we learn from them , but always remember nobody on this planet loves you like your Mom.(and Dad)
