Now that my children are older, one being 19, almost 20 and the other 17, I worry whether I did my job as a mother, properly. If all my teachings and living by example were sufficient to help them become self-reliant, productive, independent happy adults. This economy isn't helping, finding a summer job has been brutal for both of them. There are too many applicants and not enough positions. So, I worry about them and how they will find their way in life.
