Parenting. And Memories.

How different would our parenting and conversations with our kids be, if we remembered - truly remembered - what it was like when we were their age: how we felt, what we spent our time doing and thinking about, what impacted us.

Is our forgetting a good thing? An evolutionary thing that allows us to grow and change?  Is it so that parent and child go through the necessary boundary setting and struggles generation after generation?

Or is it an imperfection?
