This in response to all the hub bub of last night. I posted it once here and in the positive parent post. I wanted people to see it for sure. All I have to say is what my daughter said to me one day while driving in the car. She sadi this randomly. She is 20 now and told me this about a year ago: "Mom, you know what? I had the best childhood. I have the best memories of holidays, birthdays and all that stuff. You always made everything so great, so special. Out of all my friends parents, you are so normal. (Yes she said "NORMAL") Thay all fight with their parents and I never had to fight for anything, because you listened and explained things to me, you know, you made me understand things and didn't just say, "No, because I said so!"

One thing I do know is that I've been a good parent and so has my husband.
