  • Patience, love, accept their weirdness at times, encourage something they enjoy. It may be something they will be good at in life. Most important, patience. My daughter is a real tester.

  • just know at any age they will test you and its ok. and not all moms give you the evil look when your kid is acting up in public.. some have sympathy for you.

  • what will be will be. i decided early on that i would not be a stressed out mom, sprinting to the dr for every little thing. as long as my son was acting normally i didnt worry about things. now at 13 months when he got a rash on his trunk after going out of town with me, then yes to the dr we went. best advice for new moms would be to just relax, your baby will be fine.

  • It's OK for baby to cry. If you need a break, put baby somewhere safe and walk off.

  • Love your children unconditionally. Hug and kiss them often. Choose your battles. No one was every killed by a dust bunny. Play with your children. Limit TV. Read to or with your children every night, even when they are teens. Always keep your word. Don't make threats or promises that you can't keep. Be consistent with discipline, always.
