Let my little people go..maybe

After a little arguement with some extended family the other day (huhum... my mom) about my life being my life ... bla bla bla.. (man i feel like a teenager AGAIN); I was thinking about my own kids: what kind of mom will I be?

I mean not now when they are little .. . but when they get older, will I be a friend or a pain in their butts.. What do you do when your grown child takes a road in their lives that you know to be, well not wrong but not what you would have wished for them?
Do you:
A. Keep your opinions to yourself
B:Comment and demand that they change their course...
what do you do when your that grown child decides something for their children that you don't agree of?

I would like to think that I will be the FuN grandmother if my kids decide to have some of their own, or the cool friend in their times of need.. but then again I might be a total wacko by then.

I think this is a good question to ask one's self from time to time. It seems to me that the ideal would to be a little like a friend, but that "rock" that they trust and confide in. And probably a pain-in-the-butt once in awhile...not sure we'll be able to help that 100%. ;o)

I do think that you are right Joy, but it does help to think about it once in a while

having a child to me is not telling what i want them to do when they grow up . but to let them live their life the way they want it . i am not a mommy yet but ready to be one wanting impatienly. the job of a parent for me is to guide ur child in the right direction be their for them even when their older but not to jugde them. some people want to live their lives trough their child well it doesn't work that way. i'm sure u'll be a great mom and friend to ur children
