Some people don't need to be reassured with words. His dad was probably that type. Some really do need that though.

So, keep on letting your kids know how proud you are of them (through words and actions). They will definitey benefit from it.

I wish I could say it comes from wisdom, but it comes from the same experience as James. I cannot recall my dad ever saying he was proud of me, but I can recall the countless criticisms.
I don't want my kids feeling that way when they grow up...

Good for you. I'll bet your kids are as proud as can be of you too.

Youngest got a job!!!! WOOHOO!!!! He moved back home too. That's a downfall, but, he will be able to get back on his feet faster and pay us back and not get his truck repo'd.

Congrats, Stacy!!! I'm always thrilled when one of the kids gets a new job - especially if they have been out of work. You never know when maturity will start kicking in!

Stacy, I'm glad to hear that your son has gotten a job. Hopefully things will begin to turn around for all of you now.

Good to hear Stacey.

My celebration is that we have had an Ofsted inspector in at work for the last two mornings (these are statutory inspections of preschools). She finished today and fed back, I'm not allowed to tell you exactly what happened until the official publication of the report, but the thread may give a clue.

We are fizzing a little.

Great news Stacy!

We sold our elliptical cross trainer over the weekend and got a great price. We also won 10 on the lottery. And today I got a great much needed haircut! Things are lookin up!
