  • To me, you raise farm animals... Not children. You guide and support your children, and that doesn't stop til you're dead...

  • When my child can handle a crisis that may occur logically, and well. Only then will I consider what I instilled in them good. However parenting is a life long job. I will be teaching my kids until the day I die.

  • I don't...... family is always there to help each other out, always.
