I really tried to be but sometimes outside influence can undermine any values I tried to instill in my child. But so far(fingers crossed and a whole lot of prayer) my daughter is doing well. My granddaughter has a lot of the stepdaughter’s DNA. Nurture versus nature. Nature has a hand up. But she’s trying. And that I can say is a good thing.

I think we did a pretty good job with our 3. All are happily married, have kids and grandkids, are settled in their own homes, have good jobs and are all good citizens. No problem with drugs and/or alcohol. What more could you wish for your kids?

Two daughters,, got through the teen years unscathed,, whew. They’re 40 and 38 now,, good jobs, they seem to be fairly happy with their lives and addiction-free (unlike their parents were).
Neither one plays the banjo….

Yes as it should be. Although I was always pleased to see a teacher or coach also advocate for them, it was always under my watchful eye.

Best?? 

I dunno, but looking back, I suppose it's like in m-a-n-y other facets I figure I/we were closer to the top of the heap than the bottom.   

.... but, otoh, I guess there's always the because of / in spite of question.

None of MY children or stepchildren have been indicted for a felony.
I'll take that as a win.

Interesting word choice. I would answer that I am sometimes my children's best advocate. There are some things where, now that they are adults, other people would be better advocates for. I could advocate for my child's marine biology skills, but I'll leave that to their network of educators and researchers.

Yours were most fortunate, others as myself were not, drugs, alcohol issues, an' losing both my parents at just under 22 years was my bad awful times.
- I felt hurt reading your post hence my post, but its okay..
