Dropping the ball is a really heavy thing to say. I don't think that we or I have dropped the ball, but I do feel like I didn't focus enough on certain things. But they still knew I loved them and that was what's important.
I agree my verbiage. I do agree my verbiage was not the best the best on dropping the ball I don't think we necessarily dropped the ball I think we may have may neglect some things I don't know if that's the right word
I think that if you have parents that were really extreme in one area that you tend to swing to the other side of the pendulum with your own children And I think it's hard to try to find the middle where it's healthy for everybody If your parents were extreme.
No, I don't think I've dropped the ball because how my parents raised me and the time at which my parents raised me is different than what the time is now. So it doesn't even equate the same, doesn't even equal out. Absolutely not.
You know what my mom didn't either my mom actually I joined the Marine Corps out of them out of high school My mom actually tried to keep me from joining But when I turned 18, I was able to sign on my paperwork. So I did that.
To be honest, it's kind of like trying to be everywhere at one time. A parent can do one thing excellent and then 20 things okay and five things great, but then somewhere you're lacking. You can't be everything at once.
So like for instance my mother was super overprotective and never let me leave the house at all. So I wanted to let my child do whatever she wanted, but then my brain had to say no let's find some middle ground, some structure. Mommy! But not captivity.
