Create the family you want to have

Monday is parenting affirmation day at Help 4 Your Family!

From now on, Monday is going to be parent affirmation day at Help 4 Your Family.  Sometimes I  will share affirmations I have created and used, other times I will quote affirmations from teachers I have come to trust.

For this Monday, May 7, 2012 your parenting affirmation is:

My children give me constant opportunities to learn and grow.

Now, you know this one makes you smile, even when you are tired. I would suggest that, to make this part of your self-talk, you repeat it many times throughout the day.  Say it to yourself in the mirror, and mention it to your friends in conversations.

If you have a parenting affirmation that you would like to share, please feel free to let me know.  Maybe you will see it some other Monday 🙂

All the best to your family,

    I really like this. Especially as I sit here in my office with students and parents coming for help. I will pass this along and I know it will make a difference to someone today.

    • It depends. Something you need exncriepee for, but other questions can be answered without being a parent. (For example, by saying my parents did _____ and it was effective/not effective with me .) And sometimes I think not being a parent can allow someone to see the situation from a different angle and thus give advice (or comment on) some topics. Questions like How to explain where babies come from to a five-year-old? could be answered by people who aren’t parents, based on how it was (or wasn’t) explained to them or how they would explain it to a child of that age. I’m 18 and definitely have no children, but for some reason I like reading the questions here, and occasionally there is one I will answer despite not being a parent if I feel I can offer a valid and useful option.

  6. I’m not a parent but I like to come here bescuae I teach young elementary children. If I can manage 20 plus children that are not mine and give them an education somewhere in there, then I have some advice to give (particulary on behaviour management). At the same time, someone with no experience with children could teach a some parents a thing or two about parenting! You can take the advice or leave it. Good advice is good advice and bad advice is bad advice no matter where it comes from.
