Oh Elly, you have it totally wrong. Mike did not ask to be born. YOU wanted to have him and gave birth to him. It is YOU who owe him a good life, owe him to raise him properly, owe it to him to get an education, owe it to him that YOU will make sure he will grow up to be a productive and law-abiding citizen. He does not owe you anything for eating your food and live in your house. You asked to have a child and you do know and expect that you will need to feed him, clothe him, discipline him, teach him, bathe him, buy him things he needs. If you use this against him, saying he owes you his life, then you should NOT be a mother. You owe him YOURSELF, your TIME, and most of all, LOVE. Saying he owes you is a veiled threat, a guilt trip for something he is not guilty of – being born.
