  • Pick your battles, if there is one thing i have learned it is that i will drive myself and my kids nuts if i dont let them work some things out on their own and i dont nit pick every little thing that goes wrong.

  • Always be consistent with rewards and discipline

    Choose your battles

    The bigger the child, the bigger the problem

    A child who is the most unlovable needs love the most

  • K, the best thing I can think of to tell is that discipline is the key to happiness. You have to be consistent and always remain in control. Never let the kids think you have lost your composure.


    goodOh, and if you have girls, the key to controlling the guys they date is to make them think you are crazy and capable of anything. My daughter dated a football player who was actually scared of little 5 ft 2" me!!

  • #1 Trust your insticts! They are there for a reason.

    But at the same time, do your own research and don't blindly follow what someone tells you.
