50 Day Question Challenge 2016 - Day 16

16. What kind of parent do you think you have been/will be?

I've been the best and the worst. My own parents were very strict and I was very permissive. My double Sagittarian nature fueled a quick temper and snap judgments, followed by long explanations of why I lost my temper.

My parenting varied from child to child. My 4 daughters were and are quite different and what worked with one might fail with another.

I think children learn most from watching the actions of their parents, and I showed them a mixture. In fact, they may have learned how notto behave from me.

But, they all have college educations, have never been in jail and tell me that they always felt loved despite their unorthodox childhood. Good, bad...who can say...I think this question might be better directed at the children instead of the parents.

Sounds like you have been the best kind of parent - one who has done her best, adapted to the circumstances, and continued to question herself. And your kids have obviously come out okay.
