Does it ever bother you when you treat your children better then you were ever treated?


I don't begrudge how I treat my boys but as I care for them I sometimes find myself envying them. Is that strange, why or why not?

    The "bother" comes from a pricked conscience. The envy is what bothers me at times.

    I grew up with no elec/water/indoor toilet. we carried water in, used an outhouse, heated water on a wood stove, had gas lamps. Not a hardship if U know nothing else. Kids today do not appreciate what they have & expect even more.

    If deprivation were the extent of my experience perhaps I wouldn't feel the way I do.

    I am glad you waffled, if you would. It seems you have the basis for a writen work there that only needs personal clarity. These questions are meant as writing prompts. It seems that in your case it was successful.
