Perspective: Parents

GW_Stuart-CT-6437Describe your relationship with your parents. How has it changed over the years?

My first response to this question is that not everybody has had the chance to have a relationship with their parents, and my second is that unless a person has something very good to say on this topic, then think very hard about how appropriate it might be to discuss your parents on such a public platform.

I know, for example, that my dad, if he was alive, would be completely mortified if I discussed our relationship in any depth here, and I respect his feelings sufficiently to decline to delve.  Before you open up with your keyboard, check out #49 of  these 110 Rules for Civility and Decent Behaviour, as followed by Mr George Washington.

  1. It’s about time someone called out the authors of these type of “prompts” … As if we haven’t been psychoanalyzed, judged, typecast and pushed to spill our guts enough as it is… Besides, there’s a good portion of us that would get struck by lightning if we started blabbing about our parents!

    1. Thank you! That’s exactly how I feel. I was quite gung-ho about producing a post each day for this challenge, but as the month went on it just got more and more like public navel-gazing. SO much better to engage in that activity in private!
