People Are Divided On This Mom's Decision To Charge Her 5-Year-Old 'Rent'

By Mustafa Gatollari

It's easy to blame your parents for all of the weird idiosyncrasies you developed because, up to a certain age, it's pretty much their fault.

I've pretty much resigned myself to the fact that my own son is going to blame me for all of his problems. I guess the only way for me to combat that will be the most present and enthusiastic dad that I can be and take the bad with the good.

It definitely sounds way easier said than done, but I'd imagine if I break my back trying to prepare them for all of the problems that are plaguing me now and people my age, then I'll give my son and gestating daughter a good leg up for adulthood. I'm sure it'll have its share of challenges and failures, but hopefully I can laugh at them as much as I laughed at this.
