    How to be a light hearted parent

    Made me think a little,
    One of my Twelve Commandments is “Lighten up,” and I have a lot of resolutions aimed at trying to be a more light-hearted parent: less nagging, more laughing. We all want a peaceful, cheerful, even joyous, atmosphere at home — but we can’t nag and yell our way to get there. Here are some strategies that help me:

    A lovely sentiment...



    However, I know for a fact that most young moms just dump their kids on good old grandma and grandpa because they still have a life to live! “Or so I am told.” Anyway responsibility towards children is massively undervalued. Fact is most “Young Parents” cannot even handle a 2 year old... I have seen this and I know that it is true!
