Why create this blog?
Last week I was in search of a blog about raising children. Something I could get some info on lots of different topics. I couldn't see anything that struck me. So I decided I would start my own. If only just for myself. Most of my close friends know that I read more books about children and parenting then I do novels. I really like to get different views and ideas. I find when I'm in a parenting pickle I often remember something I've read or heard and it will help me. So I think the more I keep reading I'm just adding to this reservoir of knowledge and inspiration. I'm hoping with this blog I can share things as I learn and maybe someone else will be helped as well. You may totally disagree with something I've tried. I think that's great, I would love to see what works for you. No child is the same, so share what works for you. I hope this can be a place we can learn together how to be better parents. Children are worth it was something I thought of today because I think we could go the easy out and be permissive parents who let their children get away with a lot. But is that the best way that will teach them and guide them to be successful adults? I don't think so. Parenting can be down right exhausting but I say Children are worth the effort!
My goal is to do one post a week on a different parenting issue. I may find a chapter in a book I'm reading and discuss that. If you have something you would love to hear about. Let it be made known and I'll see what I can do.
