    nature or nurture....being the mother of fraternal twins has made me very aware of the complexity of this question! They were born as different babies requiring different parenting skills, yet with a remarkable emotional bond that remains strong 42 years later.

    mainstream.....my life was so busy I blew through middle age, and now much to my amazement I find I'm old.....and have much more in common with people my age than I ever thought I did!

    rituals.....a time of quiet reflection every day

    scary activities...no thanks. My western ranch childhood and being the mother of four adventurous kids  has been enough scary times for me. The safer the better now!

    Love is the lasting legacy of our lives

      I like your note about different kids "requiring different parenting skills."  I think it's difficult for a lot of people to figure out what their kids come into the world as, and they try to treat them all the same way.

      Not that I think I've succeeded all that well, but I think you owe it to your kids to try to figure out who they are before you try to figure out how to deal with them.
