Did your parents give you enough?
I was impressed by janbb’s question because I have wanted to ask my parents this for years. So I started thinking about the other side of the coin.
Do you feel like your parents have been there for you? If you have trouble making your way in the world, or suffer from low self-esteem or depression, do you think that your state of being is related to whether your parents gave you enough? If you have problems with relationships, do you think this is related to whether your parents modeled a loving relationship? Do you think they think they gave you enough? If they think they fell short, how do they try to make up for it? Do you think you fell short in your efforts to have a good relationship with your parents? How much responsibility do you think children have for the success of the parent-child relationship?
