Ann Landers

My mom gave me this list of parenting cues that her mom sent to her--I thought I would paste it up here.

"K" is great--I think that is one fo the real reasons why my sibs and I never really got into bad trouble in highschool. Our parents best friends were our best friends parents. And, furthermore, we had relationships with these people too. I used to sit up late at night with my best friend and her mom, talking about everything. Not as "friends", but certainly having a real honest relationship with her. It was such a blessing!

Dad also says the thing that guides him as a parent was always saying "No". Anytime we wanted something he said no, and then we had to prove to him why we wanted it. It could be as simple as "I have a craving for sugar". he'd say yes is we gave a good reason.
