Really, what is the perfect family?
No family is perfect, we all have our flaws and regrets. What matters is how you use those impurities to make life better for you and your children. For example is my mother, a horrible woman ever since her divorce. Instead of thinking of her family she only thought of her own misery. Then started to drink, abuse and starve her children still living at home.
Too many mothers in Sacramento take advantage of their families, When their life goes down the toilet they drag the kids down with them. Just last week a mother about 3 miles from us tried to drown her child because her boyfriend said the baby was crying to much. It breaks my heart to see mothers who have no regard for their kids, mothers who only keep them around as tax deductions.
There's my vent of mothers in my area, just had to share because of how sad it is. We wonder why kids nowadays are so rude and disrespectful and harmful? They had to learn it from someone.
