When people ask, “How did both your kids turn out so great?”
I reply, “They raised themselves well.”
We moved to different parts of the USA; from Minnesota to 5 other states, and back to Wisconsin for 7 years. Once my kids were 8 and 10, we moved to California.
My daughter was on a flight that arrived late. She immediately found out where the next connection was, and asked to be booked on that flight. There were only two people who immediately rescheduled, and she arrived home on time.
She was 14.
Indeed, she raised herself well.
