  • I think I'm perfect! lol

    Seriously though... I know I'm strict, but my kids are my world and my entire life revolves around them and making sure they are happy, healthy little kids. :-) People tell me I do a good job, but in truth I don't really care what others say- I can look at my kids and see that what I am doing works. That is all I need.

  • People (my in MIL and parents) say I'm strict because I stick to a good diet. I give my children whole grain, fresh fruit and veggies. Milk every meal with water in between. Diluted juice every couple days and I refuse to give them a teenagers worth of sugar and refuse to give them soda. (the are 3 and 1)

  • My mom just told me tonight that I'm a great parent, and coming from her, that means more than any compliment I could ever get from anyone. She was always such a good mother herself and I look up to her so much. Other people have told me that they admire that I'm so involved, and that I'm with my son 24/7 and actually enjoy it. They haven't said much else, other than that I'm "such a mom", lol. Yes, I'm one of those super proud mommies who thinks the world (at least MY world) revolves around my son. :)

  • Actually, there's something else. I've also had people so that I baby him, lol. But hey, he's not even a year old yet! He IS a baby!

  • My mom says I'm a bad parent and know nothing about raising kids. She's the only one who says that and she only does it when she's mad and trying to hurt me (which is nearly daily).

  • Mrs. Bat, you need to stop that. It's not good for you to hear that!! :( Hang up when she begins down that road. Or leave.

    Others think I am patient or too strict LOL

  • I am involved, strict but also fair.

  • I have the nickname "Military Mama". I tend to be very strict with my boys. They are young, but have rules, chores, and routines they have to do everyday. I am fair to them, given their ages, but as they get older, I will be "tightening" the ropes just a little.
