Do any of you ever look back and wish you could re-raise your children, and do a much better job of it? I try not to, but know I failed in some major ways...one of the children has been telling me how awful she felt during some of her childhood, (which I already knew), but did not realize it had affected her so badly until our talk. I apologized and told her of my regret, ( my husband and I were divorced, I had to go out to work, and being in my thirties had a little bit too much social life...but I don't feel they were abandoned or mistreated. She apparently sees it much differently. She thinks it has virtually ruined her life and caused her to have issues to this day. She is seeing a therapist but I feel really terrible about all this.
I would like to know if anyone else has children who feel this way and if they got past it somehow, the child, I mean.
