I’ve been thinking today of all the angst my 3 children have put me through,
the unsuitable boyfriends ( twice her age... she was 16😩)
School suspension for foul language in public, found asleep and inebriated in a laundry crate at school,taking my car on a jolly around our local market town without a driving license!
Dropping out of university, caught fare dodging on British Rail and many other misdemeanours.
At the time they were all earth shattering and caused us many sleepless nights.
Thankfully they are all now happy,caring and responsible adults with great careers.
At the time we would confide in close friends regarding these matters and only once has one of those friends told us of their child behaving badly.
Are our children horrors or do parents just never admit that their offspring are not perfect?
