A Good Parent

 

A good parent…

Loves without conditions.

You know as well as I do we live in a give and take world. I’ll do this if you do that.

This parenting thing can never be that way.

Your love for your child can not have conditions. You must love them always. Let me repeat that, you must love them always.

Love them all the time despite what may come. Not that is not to say you have to like what they do all of the time. Kids will be kids and that does not jive with what needs to go on in your household. This ride you are on called “family” has a lot of bumps and sharp turns. The best way to endure is to love the ride and hold up your arms and scream as the roller coaster goes down another incline.

Parenting can bring great joy and heart rending sorrows.

There are few guarantees.

Thank God for the privilege of being a parent and love every minute of it.

Here’s the whole good parent list:

A good parent

 

  1. Is available.
  2. Is loving but firm.
  3. Is willing to ask for help.
  4. Is the grownup not a friend?
  5. Loves without conditions.
  6. Is consistent.
  7. Has a plan.
  8. Takes care of their kids needs, they know their kids needs.
  9. Celebrates success and doesn’t hold to hurts and mistakes.
  10. Is not afraid to admit mistakes and move on.
