When I was younger my mother did not like me saying, "I can't". She always told me can't never did nothing. I cought myself the other day tell my daughter who is 6 can't never did nothing and you can so just do. I am very straight forward with my children and I do not like sugar coating matters for them. No one is perfect but I feel if they try their best that is the best achievement they can have. I let them know mistakes happen and whenever they do it's okay just don't give up and the outcome will be only that much better. My kids make me proud everyday. I am just a mom trying best to raise my kids as strong, loving individuals
