My parents were loving, kind, and always firm, yet fair. As an only child, my parents worked hard to keep me motivated and inspired to be the best I could be.
From as early as I could remember I had chores, saved my money, and understood my parents’ expectations. They were traditional in their parenting methods but good on them; it worked.
Sometimes I think they were way better parents than I could ever be, but then I remember I was a perfect child and I feel a whole lot better.
While I have no doubt my children will grow up fine in spite of my inconsistencies, I often find myself relying on the wisdom of my parents as my guide.

What did your mom and dad always say while you were growing up?
