Describe your family dynamic of your childhood vs. your family dynamic now.
Growing up my mom worked and my father stayed home. My mom was also very loving but had to work 12-14 hour days or longer just to support us. My father was very abusive both physically and mentally.
My family dynamic now is much much different.
My husband works 12 hour days so I can be a stay at home mom. He is not abusive at all.
Pretty much one of the things that are similar to my childhood is that growing up my brother and I would share all with my mom and my boys do that now. I am the person they come to when they need anything or just want someone to pray with them.
I would say my life is much better now.
