  • Im just a parent trying my best to make the right decisions.... Is there a label for that :)

  • Kiwi - I didn't mean to limit to those... Just what do YOU consider yourself... Give them your own meanings. What is conservative to one may be liberal to another... There are no hard and fast definitions.

  • i like to think i'm moderate, but i'm probably more free-range than i think. (he's a first/only, can't get much more free-range than that!)

  • I don't think I completely fall into any of those categories lol. I don't label myself either though. I'm a "do what I think is right and best for my child" parent lol. Sometimes I'm conservative, sometimes I'm liberal, and sometimes I do my own damn thing!

  • I'm not sure. I guess if I have to put my parenting style in a category it would be liberal. I try to give my kids room to grow into their own person. I don't give them too much "room" because I'm still the parent.

  • I think I would put myself into the comical chaos grouping. I have three boys and they are dang cute! They make mistakes and I am pretty patient. I let them learn for them self if something is good or bad (example "I don't want to wear my coat" he "Okay, you walk outside and tell me if it's cold" comes back in the house, me laughing " It's cold mom, I better wear my coat!" )
