As a mother, there were times when I asked myself: "What did I do
wrong?"


When my oldest son turned nine, I saw signs of defiance; he didn't
respect me. I thought that by staying home, and sacrificing my own
career, my three sons would turn out polite, compassionate and well
behaved. After all, they had a loving home environment. But was I too
soft? Would my son have treated me differently had I been a working mom?
Would he have shown me more respect had I put him in daycare?Continued on my blog: http://gutsywriter.com

YES! Okay... just kidding. Noo... it's not your fault. We can lead them to water... but then it's up to them.

No use in wondering what-if's... just knowing you did the best.. knowing you loved them... making sure they know that.... that's what being a mother is about...
It's the new approach that psychiatrists are taking that's interesting for those who blame themselves. I mentioned that in my blog post.
