Turning the Tables

About 15 years ago my wife was working with a group of middle school students and as a learning exercise asked them the question, “What bugs you about your parents?”

The actual list can be seen below:

And now, we find ourselves on the other end of the spectrum, knowing very well the list of our own kids would be identical.

When we read over that list 15 years ago, I am assuming we would have thought our kids would be different.  Our parenting style would raise perfect kids that loved us like best friends and respected us like a grandparent.

Well, the tables have surely turned on us!
