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
