    Necessary Things

    When I created this group, I created it with the intention of keeping in mind the things that I felt I needed to teach my children, things that I had to struggle to learn on my own. I am aware that in specific situations, it is best to learn on your own, but there are other...

    My Experiences Will Guide Me.

    To list all the bad experiences ive had with my mother would seem petty, and to be honest a lot of my experiences would be hard to put down into words without making myself sound selfish, so ill skip over that. What i will say though. is she was not a good parent, she was selfish...

    I Wish I Could Express Myself.

    Not A Parent Yet..

    I am not a parent yet, but still, I will never let my kid give up on his/her dream. He/She can choose whatever they want to be in life. I will never pressurize them to get good grades. I will never compare their abilities with others. I will listen to their side of the argument...

    I'm not a parent yet,

    What I Didn't Have.

    My parents stunted my emotional growth and taught me not to speak up and express feelings as I would be told I had no right to them, that they were wrong and how dare I after all they had done for me. So mainly I would teach my children that their thoughts and feelings are valid...
