    Some Thoughts And Advice On Parenting

    When my first was born, I spent hours and hours teaching her how to crawl down stairs. We lived in an apartment and my wife was with her 24/7, but.... so I felt the only defense was knowledge. When she still could not walk we entered her into a mama-baby swim class, she was 4...

    So I went to this school hosted party. Ehh, it was okay, I was just really tired, so I had a hard time enjoying myself. I was soooooooo happy to go home. So I ask my friend for a ride and she said she would. Yay. It was like 4:30 a.m. and since I don't have my license, I hadn't...

    I Am Rebelling Against My Parents At The Age Of 27

    Today I rebelled against my parents for the first time in my life. I have realized that their overprotection is a bit too much for a 27 year old. They are very nice people and have always supported me the best way they can but I have not been able to do the things I wanted to...

    Overbearing Parents Are Detrimental

    My parents were not as overprotective as they were overbearing. Every life-changing decision I would make in my life was already planned out for me as if I were a puppet. My mother was the worst...she wanted the perfect daughter and she wanted me to live exactly as she had...

    There's A Difference

    My Mother Was Like That

    My mother was always very over-protective, and never treated me like an adult, to this day she still doesn't. I don't think parents realize how much it can f*** up their kid. Once I was sixteen, could drive and get away from my mothers clutches, I was terrified. I was afraid to...
