I think statue of limitations run out on  blaming your parents when you are 21.Whatever you do after that you only have yourself to blame

AMEN Umpa!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I think we parent to the best of our ability and agree that eventually we all need to embrace our pasts and move on.

Great advise Andrea ~ I know in my mind that this is what I need to do but doing it is way more difficult!  Especially when both of my kids (18 & 20) act like they are part of the "entitlement program" and act like me and their dad were the worst parents on the planet.  Sorry ya'll ~ guess reading this put me in a sad mood :)

Hi Kim! :)

There's no need to feel sad.

Kids will try to "guilt" their parents to giving into their wishes.
I believe that this happens more these days due to the "entitlement" mentality in our culture.

There were times years ago that my kids acted this way.
You and your hubby should just stand your ground and don't give in.

Trust me... Your kids will (eventually) respect you much more if you do. That was the case with my kids.
Now that they're all grown, we have a fantastic relationships with each other!
And, they are well equipped to successfully raise their own families.

Just hang in there kiddo! ;)

Kim,
It's temporary but a bit longer lasting than you think it should be.  By 25, all is well.

My youngest brother and sister were "entitled" in the worst meaning of the word.  My mom was unable or unwilling to stand up to them and, when she died and the spigot was turned off, they couldn't maintain their families' standard of living.  It was horrible to watch and she thought she was helping while she was setting them up for failure.  It is an object lesson for all of us.

How about a hero YORKIE sniffing out the hidden sugah in children's houses. The more I live FTS, the more I see carbs everywhere. My friends are becoming aware of it, too, especially now that they're eating with me.

OMG - I LOVE this idea!!!! ;D 

I agree. The more I think about low carb, the more high carb stuff I see. It's kind of crazy.

Fear can be healthy and useful.  Everything in moderation.
