My wife and I had a conversation about parenting. She was complaining that she was a worse parent than her parents were. Her parents were patient, and always knew how to handle the kids.
I, on the other hand, feel that I am a much better parent. My father had an angry temper, and used intimidation to parent. Unfortunately, he has passed that parenting style to me, but I am a big improvement. I help with the kids more than my dad did (and more than her dad did), I am more involved, I am more patient (although I could do better.)
