If I Had Kids I Would Screw Them Up.

I was talking to someone about having kids and I said, "If I had kids I would probably screw them up," and she said, "Yes, I think you probably would." That is enough evidence that I would make a horrible mother. I should have a hysterectomy immediately.

I think that people (like me) who are hung up about all the things their parents did wrong end up screwing up their kids too, just in a different way. Going from one extreme to another. As a child I was controlled and scared into submission, so when I'm with children I'm so afraid of being too strict that I let them walk all over me. I can see that it wouldn't be healthy to have a mother like that either.

I dunno, the fact that you worry is a good thing because it shows you can analyze yourself and your behaviour. What about all the mums out there who are quite happy abusing their children (whether its yelling, beating, feeding them non stop fast food, letting them run amok) and think they are right in what they are doing?
