Thank you! That makes me feel a lot better! I wonder how long it'll take before the kids feel that way. Another generation, maybe?
Mine was still in her mid twenties when she told me how much she appreciated me. She said she liked that her DF let her do whatever she wanted but she didn't have any respect for him because of it. She said I was always her rock! She also has a 4 year old DD now (she's 32) who is just as stubborn as she is so she has a lot of challenges with her. Ahhh sometimes Karma is such a wonderful thing!
Being a parent is a tough job. You don't get to be their best friend. You have to be the person that teaches them to be the best adult they can be. Especially challenging as they head into their teenage years when they start feeling like they don't need your guidance anymore and you know they need it more than ever! Being a grandparent on the other hand is much nicer!!! Sorry. That probably doesn't help a lot right now. You are teaching your kids to be responsible, hardworking people in a generation that seems to feel entiltled to everything whether they have worked for it or not. You won't always handle things perfectly, no one can, but your kids will love you for having put so much effort into parenting. You're doing great!!!
