    I don't want to be one of those parents

    who is more of a friend than an actual parent or authority figure. But at the same time, kids need to know certain things, so best they hear it from me. My parents never attempted to explain the issue of sexual behavior. Instead, they simply said, "Don't do it" or "It's a sin to...

    I'm not a parent yet,

    but I always find myself thinking about the mistakes my parents made in raising me and my two brothers, and I hope to learn from them. Everything I learned about puberty and sex, was all from movies I've seen and lectures in school. My parents never sat me down and said "this is...

    I try to keep things real with my kids,

    in an age appropriate way. They tell me what is on their mind, and I help them work out what they want to do to resolve it. No topic is off limits. I'm strict in ways as I expect them to learn life skills, like cleaning their rooms or taking care of the dog, and they get to...

    Not A Parent Yet..

    I am not a parent yet, but still, I will never let my kid give up on his/her dream. He/She can choose whatever they want to be in life. I will never pressurize them to get good grades. I will never compare their abilities with others. I will listen to their side of the argument...

    What I Didn't Have.

    My parents stunted my emotional growth and taught me not to speak up and express feelings as I would be told I had no right to them, that they were wrong and how dare I after all they had done for me. So mainly I would teach my children that their thoughts and feelings are valid...
