    I have strong sentiments about the sanctity of life.  I would have a hard time forgiving any of my family having an abortion.

    When a child in their early development say things typical of the age, "You hate me! You like my brother better than me!".  A parent will tolerate and pacify this behavior at that time.
    But when this behavior persists for some forty years into middle age adulthood, with a violent separation of family ties, this behavior would be hard to forgive.
    Why anybody would carry a grudge for years with no attempt at a resolution is so hard to understand.

    Good question. In life domestic problems happen, there are hardships , and a need for jobs, and incomes. Life is always some form of challenge as many people must deal with all types of shortages.

    Most people are just plain human, and make mistakes. Our children are our flesh, and we usually love our children, and put up with all kinds of situations as they are growing up.

    I could never feel bitterness toward my children, but I would always try to help them to understand mistakes if they ever had them.

    God Bless You.

    I don't think any mistake is hard to forgive. When we have children it is unconditionally, so our love should be unconditionally

    My daughter is now 18 and I always had a hard time forgiving her if she lied to me. I feel that trust is one of the most important aspects of a relationship, including the relationship with your children.
    I had found alcoholic beverages in her room when she was 16 and she denied that they belonged to her. This was unbearable for me. So we had a talk. I spoke of the dangers of drinking and the fact that it is illegal to drink until she was 21. I know that many teenagers dabble with alcohol so I could handle that my daughter did, too, as long as she was honest about it and it didn't become a problem.
    Since that time I can only remember one occassion when she called me to pick her up from a party. As it turns out she wasn't the one consuming alcohol but the friend who was supposed to drive her home did. I picked her up and we found out that her friend totaled his car. He was not hurt. Her honesty on that night made up for the lie in the past.
    I am unaware of her lying to me since. She has come to me with many tough questions and shared her problems and secrets with me. I know I have instilled the value of honesty and it is heart warming to know she has heeded my advice.
