As kids it’s nearly impossible to see our parents as anything but our parents, but as we grow older it’s not uncommon to gain a deeper insight into our parents’ lives outside of their parental roles. In the last few years I’ve learned more about my parents as individuals than I did when I lived with them for two decades. And though they’ll always be Mom and Dad, now that I’m an adult and I have a different perspective on parenthood, I’ve really started see them for the people they are. Do you feel the same way? Now that you’ve grown up, do you think of your parents differently?
