Quoting kiahna:

1) Immunize your kids? Yes.

2) Spank your kids? Not yet but plan to if need be.

3) Judge everyone who doesnt do what you do, or assume based on TV thats how things should be? Only thing I assume is the way another state looks, other than that no. I judge but only those that I feel could act or do better.

4) Allow your kids to watch Disney channel at 8 (not the morning kids stuff)? We don't watch the disney channel.

5) Excerise with your kids daily (literally)? No.

6) Allow them to spend nights with people from their school? My son is too young still.

7) Home school or public school or private school? Plan to homeschool if possible.

We should be in awe at the gift of having children rather than obsessed by our rights as a mother!

1) Yes

2) Depends on what the offense was, not if I can figure out an alternate punishment that better fits the crime.

3) Don't judge, just will usually ask what punishment they use and how it works, sometimes you get better ideas that way.

4) umm we watch a LOT of veggietales, I'm having trouble finding cartoons that don't promote violence or bad manners.

5) You can't tell it by looking at me, but walking the dog, jumping on the trampoline, playing basketball, bikeriding, etc.

6) No, they are not old enough yet, when they are older I will want to meet the parents and know a LOT about the family before that happens, if the parents don't share some of the same beliefs as ours then it probably would not be an overnight stay, but a hour or two playtime.

7) I'm a public school teacher so except for preschool our kids are in public school, we only have state funded preschool where we are so we don't qualify and our kids go to a private Christian preschool.  Sure wish they would allow Bible stories and the ten commandments in our public school, as well as prayer, I don't care who you are praying for but I seriously believe our schools ALL need prayer right now!

I homeschool but if I could find a good school I wouldnt. Its just that I dont think public school is up to par in Cali. It sucks out here!! The real world is selective. Do you hear ppl saying the N word all day and kids bringing knives to school? I do! smh. If I could be sure my kids are same and sure they are around the right people, I would. I went to public school and it was good. Now? Some schools suck. But we leave the house every day and see family and go to museums. They are well socialized. ANd make friends everytime they go anywhere. If only you saw this sad state and you would rethink that lol. Los Angeles sucks! lol.
