The more older I get, the more I am like my mom than I realize... more so in the housewife duties. In the parenting, I'm not so sure yet. My mom was really strict to the point of hovering (which made me rebellious)...she was a tiger mom. My MIL, on the other hand, was not as strict but all her kids turned out fine and are pretty successful. I think I'd be somewhere in the middle.
