  •  Bad Kitties - thanks for your diary (19+ / 0-)

    I really enjoyed reading it. Fortunately for me by two girls were much easier to raise than you were. My two daughters have become very successful professionals. I do think we script our children and it's a balance between motivating them and helping them build their self-esteem, and having them understanding that you have to work hard to meet your goals. I am very touched that my two daughters, as they grew into their adult lives, have given me two messages: "I have accomplished all that I have because you always told me I could" and "To Dad, my best teacher".  Can't beat that.

      or Ceiling Cat or FSM or maybe all of them in concert know what they're doing.

      I'm awful at being a girl. Therefore, it's much better I get to help raise boys. Isn't it?
