Planet Bones... Again

I was walking through the house when this conversation occured with the boys.

Bones: Mom. Mom. Do you know anyone who has abuse in their life?

Me:

Bones: Someone who's had to deal with living in a bad situation?

Me: Umm. Yeah. Of course I do. *I continued walking out of the room*

Mr. T: Why in the heck did you ask her THAT question?

Bones: Because I have this 500 word essay I have to write for Social Studies and it has these questions I have to answer. One of them is about dealing with abuse.

Mr. T: I don't get it. So why are you asking Mom?

Bones *said in a sing songy voice*: Because... MY life is full of LOVE and AFFECTION. *normal voice* I can't write on that! I was hoping Mom would know someone and could help.

Ok then. Excellent. There is an awful lot right in that little comment.

However, why is it that even though my boys think they live the life of Love and Affection I think that they're all going to end up in serious therapy???

You just have to wonder... the long term effects of one's parenting. I do have a gf who's Mom said to her once, "We did the best we could. If it wasn't right, you're your job as an adult to realize it and get therapy to fix it." Kind of made me laugh... and yeah, they were good parents, a bit screwballish, but they were good people.

I find that it's the parents that do worry about screwing up their kids life that actually have no fear.

It's the parents that feel they are doing fine raising their kids that usually screw the kids up because they really are not doing a good job of raising their kids.
