Is there anything you would take back or do differently as a parent? What one thing would you prefer to change about the past or even your current style?Answer Question
I would yell less! And yelling is so hard to back down from. Once you start down that path, it's hard to change. I work on this daily. I pray, or walk into another room or call a friend. I had a friend a while back talk about struggling with this and I didn't understand her because my kids were so young. But that would be the one thing I would redo and am working on now to do less!

Yelling, cursing, spanking, time outs, kids eating habits, taming tantrums, getting more help from family members with the kids...
Actually, I don't think I would change much. My daughters 2 & 1/2 was counting 1-20, Spanish 1-10, the complete alphabet by 2. And now my son is following suit. I started using it as a way to get out of time out. I they could do all 3 they could get out of time out early. Now I'm working in 1+1=2, 1+2=3, etc.
We all think about things that we would do different but it comes down to making a change in what we're doing now that counts most.
