I think, no matter what, we parents are pretty hard on ourselves and aren't quite sure if we are doing an OK job in this role. This is, at least, true for me. Just knowing that the gift included my daughter's words -- from her, to me -- spoke directly to my very soul.

The main problem I faced was a distorted belief system. I felt that love came with accomplishments and accolades. I didn't believe that I was good enough to love as is. When love is missing, a lot of negative stuff comes out of the woodwork: anger, resentment, fear, jealousy.

The day will inevitably come when your sweet pre-teen gets to be dating age. And oh, what a day that is, let me tell you.

My thoughts were always about how I couldn't do it anymore, how I sucked at being a parent or how my children hated me. "Can't," "won't" and "don't" were all constants in my vocabulary.

More and more I hear Canadians making mean and disparaging comments about those who disagree or have different points of view. I also hear racist remarks, which is terribly distressing.
