What limit would you go for your children?

Work day or night, give the last piece of bread for your child, children come before anything and or anyone.

The same as you! I'd hurt myself to keep my kids safe, starve so they could eat. Even if I don't have the time to fix myself up, my kids are going to look good. Of course I take care of myself, but I'm saying if I'm out in public with my hair in a ponytail and no makeup on, my children are going to have it together :) So I'll sacrifice my looks for them :) And while I'm a SAHM and love it, if I had to work outside the home to provide for them, I would! I could go on and on, so in short, I'll go to the extreme for my babies!

I would make sure their needs are met. Would I work a second job so they could have all of their wants? No. I think that once their needs are met, then the next most important thing that would be required is having time with their parent(s). Would I give up my life for theirs, yes. But luckily the situation has never occured that has put me anywhere near that spot. (smile)

My kids needs are met and it seems that a lot of their wants are also met. Part of me thinks that too many of their wants are met though since they seem to think they are entitled to a lot without having to do anything.
