I sometimes think about how I was brought up, and there are many things that I do not want to repeat with my own children- But I sometimes find myself doing something and thinking that I wished I had not said or reacted in a certain way.

My mom was always there for me, but at the same time, she was often extremely critical of me, I don't want to be like that. My father is an alcoholic, so I really don't want to follow in those ways.

Anyone else worry about this?

I do worry about these things and have a similar relationship with my folks....the critical aspect of it all. They are extremely good with DD, but they're the type of people who expect the worst to happen and actively look for it....if that makes sense. I just can't live my life that way/on egg shells all the time. I think it's a lot of the reason I've become a bit a hypochondriac. I never run to the doctors but always think something's wrong with me. I'm trying to move past it and be more relaxed, but it's a struggle every day. I don't want my daughter to be afraid to walk out the door, so I'm trying to curb so of the tendencies I have because of the way I was raised.

When I just had one I think I was a really good parent over all. And then with 2 still pretty good. And I know I'm still a good mom, but adding 3 and then 4 has harder for my patience. And I sometimes feel badly that my younger kids don't get the kind of one on one attention my older kids received. But I just keep trying to improve and remember they are my number one.
