Your pride & joy walks through your front door one day and announces "Mom, Dad, I'm a ______." Fill in the blank. What is the one thing that would just shake you to your core & make you cringe.
sort by best latest
that one hadn't even crossed my mind! oh lordy... I'd probably pass out too... lol
just the word alone gives me the shivers! yuck!!
very insightful on the happy/unhappy ~ I bet a lot of people over-look that when trying to think about what they don't want their kids to be :) Very witty of you!
Over 70% of serial killers are abused by their parents. So yes usually they are awful parents.
When I worked for the Probation Service (Parole Office) I met people who DID raise their children to be criminals:) Not murderers, admittedly, although they didn't even seem to mind too much about that.
I think that also goes without saying - I know there are people in the world like that (I know people who encourage their children to steal, for example). But that's not what the question was asking, do you think?
No, of course you are right. People like that don't generally write on Hubpages.
Or maybe they do! It could be me ;)
Clever, clever... I'm going to take it a touch further because the 1 job I would hate for my kids to come home & tell me they have gotten or want to get - is to be a politician (criminals who dress well in my opinion)
Thanks for you answer!
Ah, but what if your child could manage to pull off the ultimate challenge? To be a politician with integrity? Then you would have cause to be proud, if their work could bring about real positive change.
Fantastic answer! Oh my gosh, I never would have even thought of that, but it's so true! Well done.
That's a terrible spot to be in. I hope things work out for your family.
>>> parish the thought... it's too horrifying
That's the same thing I was thinking when I wrote the question... lol
