Random Parenting Thoughts

This is a post I hope to add to many times… It’s just a place to get out those random thoughts I have about parenting… maybe someday I’ll put them all in a book! 🙂

1. My parenting goal is not well-behaved children, but rather, well-balanced adults.

2. Perhaps parenting is as much for the parent as it is for the child. Where else could we plumb the depths of despair and frustration… but soar to the heights of joy and happiness. Where else could we learn such self-restraint, patience, diplomacy, gentleness, long-suffering. And where else could we find the true meaning of love and devotion.

3. If something is considered unacceptable behavior when inflicted upon another human being, it should be considered unacceptable behavior when inflicted upon a child.

4. Children are meant to teach us humility: Just when you think you have this parenting thing figured out, your child will show you otherwise.
