Awkward questions time

Unrelated to... most everything else, but I have a question for you all.

What are parents supposed to be like? Having them, or even being one.

I ask because I do not... actually know from first-hand experience. I never really knew mine and I have no children of my own.

[Someone has been hitting the truth sharing apples probably a bit more than he should have, so expect some storytime.]

Well, they're supposed to look out for you and have good advice when things go wrong. My dad usually goes with "so this is how I screwed up so you don't have to".

Sometimes where you get that can be a little unexpected though. My grandfather wasn't really a parent to my mom... actually, he caused a lot of problems. But Grandpa, the one who actually raised her even though they weren't related, he was always there for her. And that's what parents are supposed to do.

Yeah, Dad's always been really honest that his life was in a bad place before he met Mom and joined the Rebellion. And that he wants better than that for me and my brothers.
