• Yes. It absolutely is.
  • Its not going to be the moments that the children live at home that will mold how they do in life. It will be when they are old enough to be fiscally responsible in life that will make their lives better or worse than their parents.
  • Yes, without question. My parents had 10 children and my father worked every hour that he could. I don't remember him living with us before the age of 11.
  • My parents were children of the depression. Neither had much education and my father couldn't read. Both were working in a factory before they were 16. Yes, my life is much better than my parents.
  • My parents both had very difficult times throughout their early lifes. I still greatly look up to them. They did the best they could for us, so we should not need. My personal life? Never. My hardship life? Yes.
  • Yes. Now we have what we need, almost everything is around us. My father received his education till the age of 15. I heard a lot, they say that in the past, the value of money is larger than today, they said that a merely RM 1 buy a lot of things and it is very precious. Edit: For your information, RM stands for Ringgit Malaysia, currency used in Malaysia.
  • Oh by far. I like to see myself as the best of both worlds from my dad and mom.
  • Yes so much better. The funny thing is though their lives have improved to better then it was years ago as well.
  • Yes, but not necessarily because of the sacrifices my parents might or might not have made. I gave my life to Jesus when I was 13, which my mother in particular opposed (religion, to her, was something good that you didn't take too seriously). Consequently the ideals of wealth and position that my parents held meant less to me than to them. My husband and I gave up profitable careers to go into full-time ministry, which has been more than fulfilling. Our marriage is happy (my parents' was not). We don't have great wealth, but our treasure is in heaven. Even my mum, towards the end of her life acknowledged that our life was better than hers, when she said "I don't know where you got your faith from. It wasn't from me. But I'm so glad you hung on."
  • Yes, and the reason is.... she wanted her children to have a better life than she was having. I feel the same way for my kids and I intend to see to it that happens.
  • yes they want my life to be better im all they got left to cherish forever
  • I think it's only important that we are satisfied with our lives at the end of it.
  • Yes, my life is better in many ways.
  • god yes. my mother lived in an old tenement house- one room- 9 people no running water no electricity hardly any money. i have a great life.
  • Have to say yes to that one. Having a high school diploma and not living in the projects already puts me ahead. Everything else is just icing on the cake
  • In just about every way . . . yes; however, MY children have not had as good a life materially as I have had to date. Job insecurity, medical expenses, education . . . all were better in the '60's, '70's & '80's.
  • Yes, but then my life is what I made it. I did not sit by waiting for a man to make me happy, take care of my lazy butt, nor pray my way to 'Hakuna Matata' via Jaysus The Wish Granter. My mother got what she bargained for, which wasn't much.
  • Yes, my mom's mother kicked her out when she was 18 and she's traumatized by that and would never do that to me. ^_^
    • Linda Joy
      I thought a child was an adult at 18.
  • Not at all better than my parents lived. Back then there were a lot of government incentive to make families, where any more, the policy of the USA is to leave families in the same pit as individuals at the sacrifice of business and taxing. My dad was an only child, and my mom lived with 11 siblings and both parents on a farm. Each had it very well.
