  • Without any question I would pick my mom. She's the best mother anyone could ask for and has always been there for me whenever I have needed her most. As for my father he was no father to me. He was just the man who got my mother pregnant and my life I think would have turnd out so much better if he would have been like so many men are today and just walked away from his responsibility.
  • Yeah, probably.
  • i would keep my mum, shes as crazy as me. as for my dad, i would prefer it if my step dad had been my real dad
  • Yes, My father was my best friend (rip), and I have a great mother. When i look back and think of my childhood, it was a great one, and i owe it all to them.
  • I always wanted to be a third kid for Ozzie and Harriet.
  • No, I would not but then I wouldnt be who I am so its best not to have that choice.
  • Most definately. I could not have been happier as a child. We did not have much but we were always well looked after and entertained. We were taught good values and always felt loved. I wish dad was around now but i like to think that i carry his good humour and values, i think he lives on inside me. :)
  • Not my father. If I could have had two people like my mother it would be awesome. Maybe the lack of having my father shaped me into what I am today and I don't think what I am is less than decent so I don't really lament the loss. If he would have had the fortitude to at least spend time with us I honestly think he would have been a great father. He messed up.He made the choice to leave. I don't fault him for getting divorced with my mom, just in that he chose to disappear and ignore our existence. I think he might have regretted that but felt some shame and couldn't get past it to renew his relationship with us. He made one mistake and I think it probably bothered him throughout his life.
  • No i wouldnt, i was closer to my best friends mum.:-)
  • Wish i still had them - my mum was a real live-wire and my dad was the strong silent type, they complimented each other beautifully :)
  • Absolutely. I would never swap my parents for anyone.
  • I more than likely want to keep my mom but I'd much rather have a different father, one who wasn't a workaholic, racist, bigot, with a flaring temper and lots of hatred for other people.
  • I would keep my mother, but would not mind trading in the wife-beating whore.
  • I'm having a really hard time with my parents right now. But the thing is, no matter how difficult it was, I'd always have to choose my parents. They are in my DNA, and everything I am I owe to them. Regardless of how bad it ever is, I believe that the Universe picks out who your parents are as part of the whole plan... I think that, even in the worst circumstances, the Universe picks our parents for us.
  • Yes. I was lucky to have them as parents.
  • No, I wouldn't choose different ones, because I wouldn't want to have to relearn my lessons.
  • yes i would choose my stepdad to be my dad as my dad is a alcoholic and nothing else part from the beer is for him important,thats the reason why my mum left him
  • I would keep my dad, but only wish that he wasn't sick, as he had a disease that robbed him of a lot of opportunities and a lot of joy in life, and consequently left him very difficult to get along with at times. As for my mother, I would choose one who wanted my brother and I, instead of walking out on us when we were babies ( I wasn't yet a year old, he was two).
  • Yes only with upgrades... higher version would help;-) jokes apart... I wouldn't want to pick anyone except my own parents once again....
  • i don't know a part of me says, hell no; i deserve better, but then a part of me knows i have learned a lot from them and they have helped make me who i am today. however fucked up they or i am/have been.
  • I am not surprised that you received alot of points because this is a great thought-provoking question. I have had a tough relationship with my parents, especially with my mother. BUT, now that I am married with almost 4 children, I am alot more sensitive and forgiving of their faults. I realize now that no parent is perfect and some of my friends have even worse parents. I was abused as a child and my mother knew and did nothing, but she has asked for forgiveness and things are better. She is a fearful person and cares what the community thinks of her and such. So, I think I would still choose the ones I have because they know how to ask for forgiveness and they are great grandparents.
  • I would keep my mom. As I have said before, my sperm donor (male contributor to my existence) is a pervert on so many levels. I am not the only person this abuse happened to. I would choose a different man any day to have been my father.
  • I'd choose ones that actually want to be a part of my life.
  • I would pick the exact same ones. I mean I am actually ABing with my dad right now!!!
  • I wouldn't have changed anything, my parents are gone now, but they were mine, and I loved them both so very much...I can't imagine the ripple effect of different parents.
  • I love my parents. Both are loving supportive, and like my best friends!
  • i wouldn't want to change either one they have been great parents even when i made stupid decisions in life they were always by my side to help me out
  • My parents are deceased but if I had a choice in it I would have kept dad but would not have chosen the mother :)
  • Sure...I wouldn't be the woman that I am today if it weren't for them. Thanks Mom & Dad! :)
  • My dad was great. Mom sucked. Can I pick a hot step mom?:)
  • I wouldn't change anything because that would have changed me, which in turn would have changed my life and perhaps I would not have had my son. You never know what the ultimate consequences will be and I wouldn't be willing to gamble that I'd be better off! :) ((hugs))
  • i wou still chose my mom..but not my dad
  • I would certainly have enjoyed having a loving, supportive mother.
  • I would choose the one's who originally produced me. I have my faults, but basically I really like who I am and that is due largely to the genes they passed on to me and the environment in which they raised me. I have three brothers raised by the same parents and I really love how they turned out as well.
  • I would not change my parents for the world. I have put them through hell one way or another and they have stood by me through thick and thin. I'm now 28 and see that my parents are not perfect, but I wouldnt change a thing about either of them. They have shown me the importance of respect, love, manners and self worth and I could only be forever grateful to them for that. I feel for anybody who lacks the love and support from their parents.
  • My Mom most definitely!! Dad ??
  • Your most welcome Sweet T.
  • Yeah! If we didn't have our parents. We wouldn't be who we are..
  • I wish my mom had been more confident and outgoing.
  • Overall I'd have to answer yes, they made me who I am. But there are and sure have been times I coulda traded them for what is behind door #3.
  • Most definately. I might disagree with what they do at times but at the end of the day, they are still my parents. That's nothing I could change, so I choose to accept. No one is perfect, just love what you have and cherish what you have.
  • Oh yes! I love my parents to death. I couldn't ask for better parents.
  • yes i love my mom even when we have our rough times we always love eachother
  • Yes I love my parents, they love me a lot, they always support any decision I make, they even called me ‘their gold’ and they fight who has the most things in common with me. P.S I have another two sisters;p
  • Ya I couldn't have asked for better parents I had a great childhood and a wild teens and they always stood by me and tried to see things from my point.
  • My dad, yes. My mom, no. My dad has always been my hero and my rock and has always been there for me when I needed him. My mom is selfish and doesn't care about anyone but herself. I recently moved in with my dad about two and a half months ago, and I haven't heard from my mom once- not even to see if I made it here okay. She never should have been a parent, and I've told her so.
  • Yeah. They're not perfect, but I've grown pretty attached to 'em! Besides, they were good enough to keep ME around! :P
  • Without question, no.
  • i wouldn't choose either of themm... i feel terrible saying this but thinking on it now (really good question by the way really made me think) the things i love them for a really irrelavant, i think the most important thing about parents are that they are: supportive loving understanding and understand that i am just 14 and that i am who i am and i shouldn't have to change that for them... well that is what i think anyway, and my parents are not any of those...
  • I would choose the ones I have right now. My dad is quiet, stoic,tall, hardworking and scary but with me he's sweet and cuddly (the life of being a daddy's girl). My mom is short, annoying, bitchy, and fun at the same time. I can debate over anything with her, and still get a good laugh. However, I would trade my brother for a mouse if he keeps stealing my laptop.
  • yes i would have the same mother and father i would love to of spent more time with my father.we worket to geather we went drinking togeather my mother was great to thye showed us how to do things right they kept us out of trouble with the law and showed us how to live
  • no question about it yes !! +5
  • OH HELL NO!
