I know some people will definitely agree with this as well. I am the parent that I am now mostly because I didn’t agree with a lot of parenting choices, or complete lack thereof, in my own family. I know I turned out “fine” (like some people justify their disrespectful treatment of children) but I want my kids to turn out the best they can, not just fine. And the fact that some of us are fine is not because of what we have gone through, but in spite of. This world should be a better place for the kids because we know it can be, and we know that we can help it.
