1. It's Okay to Be Mad at Them

One of the best things to learn from your parents' mistakes is it is okay to be mad at them for their mistake at first. This is a normal feeling and one most anyone should feel if the mistake hurts you directly. For example, my father made some pretty big mistakes that hurt our family during my teenage years and ultimately led to my parents divorcing. I was afraid to be mad at him for years, but what I learned was that it was okay to be mad.
