You cannot predict the future. You can only do the best that you can do with the tools you are given and know that it was your best and that needs to be enough. Of course it''s possible to raise kids that won''t resent you... hardly anyone I know ''resents'' their parents...but as you said most adults at some point realize that their parents were fallible, human and made bad decisions from time to time through life. That is just life...no one is perfect. I would not try to set yourself up so that in the future your kid NEVER thinks you should have done something differently, that''s unrealistic IMO.
