My kids are all grown up now, but I am sure when I tell you that me and my husband did a lot of things differently than our parents. We tell our kids at least once a day that we love them and we are proud of them. We hug them a lot and support them and listen to them no matter what it was and we always talk about things. My son right up through high school would wake me up and tell me about his dates. I felt honored that he would do that. They both are growing up to be really fine people and we are still really close.
