Mean Moms

>??????????????Mean Moms-
>>????????Someday when my children are old enough to
>>????????understand the logic that motivates a parent, I will
>>????????tell them, as my Mean Mom told me: I loved you
>>????????enough . . . to ask where you were going, with whom,
>>????????and what time you would be home.
>>????????I loved you enough to be silent and let you
>>????????discover that your new best friend was a creep.
>>????????I loved you enough to make you go pay for the
>>????????bubble gum you had taken and tell the clerk, "I
>>????????stole this yesterday and want to pay for it."
>>????????I loved you enough to stand over you for two hours
>>????????while you cleaned your room, a job that should have
>>????????taken 15 minutes.
>>????????I loved you enough to let you see anger,
>>????????disappointment, and tears in my eyes. Children must
>>????????learn that their parents aren't perfect.
>>????????I loved you enough to let you assume the
>>????????responsibility for your actions even when the
>>????????penalties were so harsh they almost broke my heart.
>>????????But most of all, I loved you enough . . . to say
>>????????NO when I knew you would hate me for it.
>>????????Those were the most difficult battles of all. I'm
>>????????glad I won them, because in the end you won, too.
>>????????And someday when your children are old enough to
>>????????understand the logic that motivates parents, you
>>????????will tell them.
>>????????Was your Mom mean? I know mine was. We had the
>>????????meanest mother in the whole world! While other kids
>>????????ate candy for breakfast, we had to have cereal,
>>????????eggs, and toast. When others had a Pepsi and a
>>????????Twinkie for lunch, we had to eat sandwiches. And you
>>????????can guess our mother fixed us a dinner that was
>>????????different from what other kids had, too.
>>????????Mother insisted on knowing where we were at all
>>????????times. You'd think we were convicts in a prison. She
>>????????had to know who our friends were, and what we were
>>????????doing with them. She insisted that if we said we
>>????????would be gone for an hour, we would be gone for an
>>????????hour or less.
>>????????We were ashamed to admit it, but she had the nerve
>>????????to break the Child Labor Laws by making us work. We
>>????????had to wash the dishes, make the beds, learn to
>>????????cook, vacuum the floor, do laundry, empty the trash
>>????????and all sorts of cruel jobs. I think she would lie
>>????????awake at night thinking of more things for us to do.
>>????????She always insisted on us telling the truth, the
>>????????whole truth, and nothing but the truth. By the time
>>????????we were teenagers, she could read our minds and had
>>????????eyes in the back of her head. Then, life was really
>>????????Mother wouldn't let our friends just honk the horn
>>????????when they drove up. They had to come up to the door
>>????????so she could meet them. While everyone else could
>>????????date when they were 12 or 13, we had to wait until
>>????????we were 16.
>>????????Because of our mother we missed out on lots of
>>????????things other kids experienced. None of us have ever
>>????????been caught shoplifting, vandalizing other's
>>????????property or ever arrested for any crime. It was all
>>????????her fault.
>>????????Now that we have left home, we are all educated,
>>????????honest adults. We are doing our best to be mean
>>????????parents just like Mom was.
>>????????I think that is what's wrong with the world today.
>>????????It just doesn't have enough mean moms!
>>????????(And Their Kids!!!)

Build memories, take a kid out doors and teach them about nature by interacting with it, hunting and fishing.

Learn from the past, don't dwell on it.
