Isn't this thread about parents? I never got into violent games either. Adventure was good enough for me!

Depends, do you consider QFG violent?

I'm  not a good liar either! I do kind of smile when I lie, because I can't hold it in that well... My parents were watching Indiana Jones and the Temple of Death, and I saw the scene where the guy ripped out another guy's heart, and after that, I had bad dreams for a long time! And I was five or so!

Psst:  It is Temple of Doom.  BTW, I saw that movie when I was little and I was freaked out by the eyeball(s) in the soup.

I'm very thankful that I slept through all of the Indiana Jones movies I could've watched. :P

Eyeballs usually freak me out (I cannot watch people putting contacts in) but I've gotten better about it.

Getting back to topic: 

As far as BEING a parent....

I've tried really hard to be like and not like my own parents in so many ways! 

I let my kids taste "adult" beverages when they're home with me.  I enjoy watching movies they want to see (when they're home with me.)  I like reading the books they want to read (Harry Potter to Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants) but I will never approve of them hiding a book from me.  I don't restrict their Internet sites, but I don't approve of them shutting the doors while they're using the computer.

Does this make me a good or a bad parent??  I don't know, but it's the only parent I know how to be.
I'm so happy to be Valanice!  I've been living with a  Princess for so long, I'm glad to finally reach Queenly status <3
Warm Regards to all,

I have helped to raise my two younger siblings, and Valanice, I happen to agree strongly with your way of parenting.
It's how my mom and dad raised me, and it's how I plan on raising my own children when and if I have them.

Kelsey, your mom ROCKS! I hope you realize that.

Yeah! She does rock! I think it makes you a good parent not putting too many restrictions on them but still drawing the line.

While the internet wasn't a problem when I was growing up, my folks did raised me that way too and I hope to do the same when/if i have kids.
