Smile Thanks

Guys, thanks for the vote of confidence. I can't take credit for it myself but rather gotta tell y'all, my parents are responsible for beating it into my thick skull. I know they wondered many times if I was going to get it or not. Now I gotta thank them for it..... You know my dad always told me if you can figure out how it works, you can figure out how to fix it. I believe I got a lot of my knowledge from him in things just like that. He could fix anything and passed a lot of that along to me (I am not nearly as good as he is but then I have not been doing it for 45 years either, only close to 15). Again, thanks.

Absolutely, The problem is most follow almost unconciously in the same footsteps as their parents & make many of the same mistakes since that's what they grew up with, that becomes their deffinition of "normal".
You have to actively work at breaking the cycle of bad behaviors or bad habits to improve your life & that of your children.
For instance, I grew up hearing my parents fight, over bills, money, whatever.... When I started dating my wife (& I had never done this in any prior relationship) we eventually got into a conversation that started to escallate into what would have been our 1st fight. Then it hit me like a brick... I turned to her & said look, I am not doing this, my parents faught all the time. We are adults so we can either talk to each other like adults, or we need to go to our own corners, cool off & try again later. I refuse to fight, yell, scream, or stand there & listen to anyone else doing it in my direction anymore. Yelling only flairs tempers, you start to say things you don't mean just trying to "win" the fight. You can't take those things back & it can easily drive 2 people apart. It serves no productive purpose.
As a result of breaking that bad habit, I have been living with my wife for 8 years, Married for almost 5 yrs. We have 2 kids, and have NEVER had a fight.
We disagree from time to time & talk it out. but No yelling, screaming, door slamming, etc. It's nice to respect the person you are with that much. I'm not preaching, but man... it just feels like a much healthier way to have a relationship.
