    Is it in bad taste to brag about your kids?

    Friday was the last day of school for my daughters and over the last 2 weeks it's been award ceremonies, plays and a Mom and Dad filled with pride. My daughters have worked really hard this year and both ended up with straight ..A,s.

    The thing that kinda gets me is that my wife and I don't really put much pressure on them, we just ask them to do their best and they just do it. I'm just amazed by it really.

    Should be proud when your kids are doing great! Thanks for sharing here. That's neat, and I hope you have a full life time being proud of what they do.

    Thank you.. and your comment just gave me a thought, a question really..

    Are we programed to only talk about the bad stuff and keep the good stuff bottled inside?

    I'm sure plenty of parents are proud of what there kids do but we generally only here about the not so good stuff.

    Take their report cards down to the Family Video store. You'll get one free rental per grade. :D
