  • I'm very liberal "free range." Believe children should be exposed to everything in an effort to give them the broadest knowledge and understanding as an adult, so I generally allow them to explore their world without the need for limits. I don't censor them from anything! And tend to "over educate" on sensitive issues so that I know they are getting the proper information... Above all I believe in an open honest relationship...

  • I am still learning but i don't think my parenting style will be like my parents. she is only 18months. but i am playful but i want her to be independant so i think do alot of things differently then my parents. they really babied me so i am trying not to baby her as much. i want her to be a child but have responsiblity and rules. i am a single mom so i have to be both parents in a way. so we have fun but she is learning to be her own person even at this early age.

  • Remember they will need to live what you teach them. Not all fun and games . I was sent out not knowing a thing and messed up.

  • I am a combination of many styles. I know when to be strict, I know when to have fun. I allow my DD to explore, succeed, & fail. I allow her to get some bumps & bruises. But I also cuddle her & tell her I love her every chance I get. I teach her the things that I think are valuable now & in the future. I encourage her & comfort her. We play together, we learn together. But rules are rules. I am raising her to be a wife, a mother, a friend, a valuable member of society.

  • I agree with Sabrina as well.. I am very easy going except for making sure that my ds has been exposed to as many different cultures, religions and lifestyles to try facilitate his understanding and respect for others.
