Welcome back to another Sunday Poser
This week my question is;
As a child did you listened to your parents? Was mom/dad always right?
I saw this image some time back and have always wondered if we all thought the same;
This meme talks just about moms but fathers are also included in this struggle we have with parental authority as we are growing up. As a child, I only had my father. I did have a stepmom but she wasn’t involved in our upbringing or training. I was a good kid. I never went against my father’s wishes, never got angry with him, or showed my resentment towards him. He was the ideal parent. My brothers weren’t that nice. There were some storms, shouting, and disobedience where they were concerned, especially my eldest brother.
When my kids got to preteen/ teenage, they had issues with both my and my husband’s authority. Perhaps it is a generational thing. Now they all are 30+, with kids of their own, and have come to acknowledge that they have parents that care about them genuinely.
If you can, do share how it was for you when you were growing up; did you always listen to your parents and accepted their authority?
Please share your thoughts in the comments section or you can write your own post and link it to this one so that I can find it.
As usual, thanks of visiting and reading.
