Parental Guilt – To Deny, or Not to Deny?

guilt

I believe that I’ve finally come to a place that I can deal with the agony and ecstasy of being a parent.

If my adult children (18, 20 & 26) do brilliant and wonderful things and contribute to society in a positive way, then I cheerfully take the credit for this – after all, I raised them, and shared my altruistic values with them.

On the other hand, if they fail miserably and make poor choices and their lives tank – well, after the age of 18, since you’re considered an adult and hold a driver’s license, you’re old enough to take responsibility for your own actions. Besides, it would be a shame if they take after their father’s side of the family.
