Things I’ll teach my children (via ramengirl48)
parents say: i didn’t raise you that way
true, because I did.
Parents, you raise your child up until about age 12 when they’re starting 6th grade. After that, your words might shape their opinions, but they start to learn who they are as a person. By 9th grade, they’ve gone through most of their hormonal/puberty stage and being to experience the world even more and start developing their own opinions. They begin to disagree with your beliefs because they have their own now.
Once your child is 18, they become an “adult” and they realize that now I have freedom when they’re at college, driving to hang out with friends because they want to, or living on their own.
You raised me to an extent, but then I raised myself and became my own person with my own thoughts, opinions, and ways that I want to live MY life… not yours.
