I needed more ice cream in my life. Other than that, I wouldn't change a thing.
That my parents could have controlled my older brother from hitting me all the time.
Different parents. Intelligent, non-alcoholic, supportive, gainfully employed, interested adults with no tendencies toward three day benders and public profanity would be a step forward.
That my mom had earned enough money working one job instead of having to work two jobs.
I know most children would protest what I am about to write but I wish my parents had given me less freedom to wonder the streets on my own.
To have been raised in a family that cared.
I have been raised being not known about the world , I mean I don't know how to handle evil people who interfere with me , "I sometimes blindingly believe all" that's the thing I want to change.
I don't think there's anything I would change. I have excellent parents and I've very grateful for the way I was raised. I can imagine having a great relationship with my parents when I'm an adult :)
i wish i had more understanding parents who'd known how i felt , and how sensitive i was!
I don't think I would have changed anything. We were never very well-off, but my parents still made sure we were well-clothed and fed.
What sortof changed our lives was that we had elderly and frail grandparents to live with us when we were both still children. From that point onward, holidays and many other social activities were difficult (many actually impossible).
Would I have liked my parents to have abandoned their parents in the interests of a better childhood for me? Of course not.
Unfortunately and Fortunately I am a product of genetics and past events with regards to experiences and environmental exposures . . . To change a thing in the past would mean a different person here before you now. So, whilst I contemplate how much life would have been significantly better without the shambles of Religion shoved down my throat, I am thankful for the outcome, since I can see no other way to arrive at the person I am, nor the family I have today.
The fact that I could be happy for the things I had in steading of wanting more.
I thought about this for a long time before I decided to answer. The experiences that I had growing up helped shape who I am today. That, plus other life experiences, helped me parent my son into a wonderful young man.
I would have like it if my mom hadn't beaten us, made us feel terrible about being alive, etc., however, it shaped me - it gave me courage to reach out and meet some wonderful people that helped me become who I am today.
I made choices as a single mom, based on my childhood, on how I could change parenting styles and make a bigger difference in my son's life.
I know I'm only 15, and still being raised, but I would have liked if my parents had forced me into more social situations. I'm still learning, and maybe a few years down the line, I won't have changed a thing because I'll be more confident, but now, that's what I would change.
