Answer for question 4605.

If you're a parent, what's the hardest part about being one? If you could get one thing to help you out in being a parent, what would it be? What's one thing you wish more parents were better at, whether or not you're a parent yourself?
I struggled with letting my son out of my sight, be his own person, make his own mistakes. I wish I had been able to read minds. And not just his ... the people, kids and adults, around him. I was a single parent until he was nine. I worried all the time. Even after he became an adult, joined the Navy and was a part of Desert Storm. Heck, I still watch the weather channel in his area. The really nice thing is he watches the weather channel in my area. He's turned into such a good man, I guess I didn't screw up too bad.
