Your Parenting Motto: Love Is All You Need
So there are dirty dishes in the sink. So what? It’s not the end of the world. You know that kids grow up too fast and want to spend your time enjoying them instead of stressing out about having a perfectly clean house. Your personality is more laid back, you don’t see the value in getting worked up over little details. Instead, you prefer to take life as it comes and find the love and laughter in any situation.
Your Parenting Motto: You Can Never Be Too Prepared
Bandaids? Check. Snacks? Check. Reasonable bedtime? Check. You do everything you can to be sure your kids have everything they need to grow up to be well-rounded, smart, generally awesome people. You’ve created a nurturing and stable environment for your kids and should take pride in knowing that you do the best you can to keep your family safe and healthy.
Your Parenting Motto: Lead by Example
You’re raising your kids to be strong and confident in all areas of their life. You know that kids are pretty perceptive and will pick up what they need to be ready for what life throws their way—sort of like you. So you let them do their own thing, learn from their mistakes, and hopefully learn from you along the way.
Your Parenting Motto: Live Healthy, Live Happy
You know the importance of keeping mind and body in balance, and you want to pass that on to your kids. Fresh air, fresh food, active lifestyle–you know how important these habits are and how much they will benefit your children later in life.
