    • I’m very proud of my daughter’s accomplishments at school and her many talents. My daughter is the best thing in my life!  However, there’s a part of me that wished I was as smart and talented as her. When I was 20 I was a nobody. She’s so much better than I am in everything. She loves me the way I am, but sometimes I feel like a loser...

    • Not really.  I’m just glad the two older ones have made better life choices than I did at their age.

    • No, never felt jealous of them, I’m happy they have had the opportunity to go to college when I didn’t. And I do wish I was younger happy

    • No, our son is following his dream of fitness training, and he was destined for that.  I did go to college and get a degree, then worked in the field.  Sadly to say, I’m not quite sure how many opportunities there will be for young, white men anymore.  Not trying to sound biased, but at least where we live there are slim pickens for jobs and hopefully he attains enough job experience and can possibly move on to another place to live, and his dad and I will follow.happy

    • No jealousy here! I am so proud of my 3 children and I encourage them to enjoy life, love others and be the best that they can be.  I want them to leave their footprints and be known for their kindness and knowledge whether it be near or far.

      An act of kindness is a gift given

    • Linda—how can you be a loser when you’ve raised such an awesome daughter?  The investment we make in our children should never be underestimated!  What you’ve done counts!

    • linda -  your daughter is a great reflection of how you have cared, loved and raised her.  good on you.  my mum raised me differently from how i am raising my daughter.  i have moments where i wished my mum could have helped me understand myself and life better.  that was then and this is now times have changed.  she is 15 now 16 in october there is much to help her with and to learn about.
