Do you think that you are a better parent to your children than your own parents were to you?
Do you believe that you are a better parent to your child/children than your parents were to you? Are there things that your parents did that you disagree with and would never do with your child/children? Or are there things that you said you would never do but now find yourself doing them?
I know that I am a better parent than my folks were, but I hasten to admit that they had good intentions. My children may say the same about me, one day. My mother withheld the verbal expression of love although I know that when she laid my food on the table or sacrificed to fill my needs, that was love. I express my love and affection to my children. I affirm them and cheer them on. I discuss aspects of life which my parents never discussed with me. I wish my folks told me more about themselves; I am much more open with my children. I'm blank on your last question.
No doubt. I came from a split home, my parents never went to school activities, never seen me play ball. We went to all school activities, field trips, etc, showed the love that was missing from my childhood and tried to be as involved as possible. Even now as a grandparent, I've spent more time with my 4yr old grandson than my parents spent with my daughter her entire life.

The internet seems to be getting flooded with new technology such as Android Tracking App and so on. This software basically allows parents to track and view all their kids messages on their mobiles etc - without the kids knowing anything about it! Now, while I do concede that for safety reasons...
