how much of our parenting style comes from our parents?
I just found Girl's Gone Child- she has a post recalling that her earliest memories are of nightmares. She says she remembers waiting in her bed for her mom or dad to scoop her up and put her in between them, safe and cozy in their bed. She writes, then, about her little one crying for her from his crib, and her memories flooded back. Reading that, I reacted with two emotional responses and it occurred to me that they're probably deeply linked.
