4 Ways Your Relationship Gets Better Once the Kids are grown

When I was a new mom, I dreaded the first time that my daughter said she hated me. I was sure it would break my heart and strip all of my maternal confidence away. Inevitably, it happened.

He was my first child and, as many mothers do, I poured all my parental anxiety into micromanagement of his diet. This, of course, did nothing to improve it.
