There are so many different types of homes that we have grown up in, such as single parent, blended families/Brady Bunch style, Cosby Show style, Divorced, Raised by grandparents or other family members, Adopted, and so many more. I have been a parent for almost 10 years and have been told that I am doing a great job. Although, I do not doubt that I am, I want to do my best. So, I am curious to know what are some things that your parents taught/instilled/or did for you that you feel is important for every parent and/or what are some things that you were allowed to do/taught/or got away with that you feel was not a good idea on their part. As an adult now, what do you feel your parents should have taught you to prepare you for the “Real World” and didn’t? Lastly, Do you have any advice to share with other parents who want to make sure their children are getting everything they need to be successful people in society? This parenting thing can be really complicated sometimes. I’m sure we could all use some wise words. I know I could.
