Stupid

My kids think I'm stupid.  They don't appreciate me.  They don't respect me.  I wish they still loved me, especially my oldest.

I miss my little ones.

your children will find out diffrently .

I DONT THINK YOUR KIDS THINK YOUR STUPED ITS THIS GENERATION DONT HAVE ANY REPECT FOR THE ELDERSAND THEY WHATEVER COMES TO THEIR MIND

Kids are kids, but it's a job of a parent to make the kids respect them. It's all about the discipline. Kids feel right away if they can use the parent and immediately they take advantage. If a parent is sulking somewhere, having no word or will, letting kids get away with stuff, of course kids are gonna think you're stupid.<br />
Now I'm not saying that you're stupid, not at all. I just think that the first culprit of your kids' opinion of you is the lack of discipline and the inner force from within you.<br />
I remember my mother, who used to love me more that anything in the world, spoiled me like crazy, but she also had this look in her eyes not to mess with her and things were in order. She expressed herself confidently and I felt it! I felt her power from within I didn't dare to compete with, yet she was extremely loving.<br />
Having kids before growing up ourselves is a risky business. GOod luck.

I think this is the biggest complaint among parents, esp. with teens and pre-teens. Don't worry! When they're 35 it'll dawn on them how smart you really were and are!! And chances are--- you prob. thought your parents were stupid back then too! Just don't give up on the kids, and one day they may actually thank you for being "stupid"!
