How Did Your Parents Fuck Up While Raising You?

Parenting is hard (I think), and no matter how hard you try to keep your own shortcomings away from your kids there are some of them that are going to inherit them anyway. For the most part I think my parents did a pretty good job of raising me.

For some reason, probably because I’m so used to telling my parents whatever I was doing on a certain day when I was a kid I still feel obligated to let them know what my plans are over the course of the day. I’m in my mid 20s. As a kid, if I let my parents get worried about me, that would normally mean trouble for me whenever I get back. So, now I must think that if I don’t tell them what I’m doing I might get in trouble. I’m sure that will go away eventually. So I guess in the back of my mind I’m still scared to get my parents mad at me, even though I’m an adult.

My mom is also a bit of a worrier, and I seem to have inherited that for some reason. I have no idea why because I hardly give a fuck about anything.

How did you parents fuck up while raising you? Maybe if you’re from an earlier time than me you inherited your parents’ racist beliefs?
