LOS ANGELES, Jan 23 (Reuters) - Whitney Houston's mother has told People magazine that she questions her skills as a parent and wonders if she could have saved her superstar daughter from the drug use that played a role in her death.
"Was I a good mother?" Cissy Houston, 79, was quoted as telling the celebrity magazine in an advance excerpt released on Wednesday from the magazine's Friday edition.
"I still wonder if I could have saved her somehow. But there's no book written on how to be a parent. You do the best you can."
