You want to heal your childhood
It’s common for those with turbulent childhoods to believe they can heal their own wounds by having a child and being the type of parent they wish their parents had been. But, once again, you should never have a child at someone, to fix a problem or to heal a wound. You should only have a child out of a positive, stable place. Keep in mind that you may not have the perfect relationship with your child you hoped to have. Your relationship with your child could be strained, as it was with your own parents, which could leave you feeling even more devastated. Make sure your wounds with your parents are healed before becoming a parent.
