My mother My mother has always had strong faith and views in her religion. I'm going to respectfully disagree with you. My kids are no longer really mine to raise. Now, w/re to the "self love" thing, I struggle with that to this day. We’re expected to do all. But my primary motive was scientific. I am an adult who understands the powerful effect my emotions, actions, and words can have on my child.

Brave as you send them off to preschool, then kindergarten, and then college. In fact, they often felt that too much attention and praise might spoil them and make them conceited. It is a tough tight-rope to walk, no doubt!

Peg has keenly noticed and noted that, somehow, many of those of us who were treated badly (aka chronic abuse) by our "mean" mothers; those of us who dare to go on, in spite of all odds and trepidations to procreate; manage to do so by simply doing the opposite of what their own mothers did.
