  • I definitely tend to lean towards more natural and attachment parenting, but it all depends on the day and the situation.

  • Uhh.. Can't really put a pin in that one, but I do recognize that I have no Idea what the heck I am doing, and often lean back on the assurance that if I mess up, they will always have therapy....

  • Gentle, open, and natural. It's generally considered attachment parenting.

  • I dunnnow...Kinda laid back. I used to be a "shouter/yeller" but it got to stressful so I stopped sweating the little things. So what if the house isn't spotless? Or so we spent the whole weekend in our jammies playing transformers and watching cartoons.
    I just roll with it...

  • understanding and try real hard not to laugh when they start to complain about my grandkids. I traveled 2300 miles with my youngest, her two kids and grandson. We are all still speaking to each other so i guess i must have done something right all them years ago

  • Firm, in that we demand respect and enforce discipline.

    Loving... our son is NOT afraid of us, nor will he ever be. He is allowed to run around, jump off the walls and be a boy, don't condemn him for being nearly 3 and a boy. But respect is required.

  • Laid back, open, honest, natural consequences, limits, I let him have some say in decisions. I let him be a kid and jump on the bed, make messes. I require respect and manners...no choice in that.
