Not all parents know how to parent. I doubt my relationship with my kids could be similar to what I had with my parents. I had to reason to do bad because I was loved and always felt cared for My Dad knew where I was nearly all the time. I had know desire to "sneak off" with boys. I had no desire to like about how I was. I don't know how to parent in a time where lying and sneaking is all around. We have the technology to have a whole separate life as adults and kids. We have a terribly impersonal society. People haven't learn to teach there kids to put themselves first in a healthy way. I thought I was doing OK as a parent, but I clearly don't know these rules of this sad society. I don't bow to the idols of money or any other idols, so I role model only what I know.
