How many children do you have and what are their ages?

I have three daughters: Annabelle is 5, Solmarie is 7 and Gabby is 8 going on 16. I also have a husband who is 30 going on 18.

 

What is ONE song that reminds you of your child(ren)?

Eye of the Tiger by Katy Perry

 

How would you define your style of parenting?

I consistently flip flop between free range parenting (when I’m blogging) and helicopter parenting (when I’m not on the computer). But I am a huge fan of Erik Erikson’s Theory of Cognitive Development, and I kind of mix that up with Abraham Maslow, Piaget and little touch of Freud (for that extra zing). Nobody appreciates my parenting, and some accuse me of spoiling my children (pampered, my children are pampered), but my kids are happier, smarter and nicer than their kids so ha to them.  I also believe in confident parenting, where you follow your instinct and not the voices of overly critical self absorbed idiots.

 

Do you have a restaurant or favorite place that you will only go with your child(ren)?

Chuck E Cheese and a huge pool that calls themselves a water park (it does have a pirate ship, 2 slides and a lazy river).

 

What is one piece of advice you would give your child(ren) that can apply to their entire life?

Never lose faith in God and doing the right thing. No matter how many weak sheep you run into guised as assholes making you doubt your ways, you will always have something they don’t if you keep doing the right thing with fierce determination, and that’s character, dignity, and a clear conscience. The real reward for righteousness isn’t meant to be given in life, but in death, but they say only the righteous shall see God, so the more you do the right thing and the more you love instead of hate, and the more you embrace the light instead of the darkness, the closer you’ll get to seeing God before your death.

What is ONE song that reminds you of your child(ren)?
I like to move it from Madagascar (movie). We have watched those movies over and over and over again… I think I may have most of the lines memorized!! lol
 
How would you define your style of parenting?
I would say I am more laid back and relaxed. I try not to stress about every little thing… though I do have my moments. I feel kids need to be kids yet still learn responsibility. That sometimes they have to learn from their own mistakes. And I will never be perfect and there will always be someone to point it out in life… so I try and take a day at a time, love them and make sure they know they are loved. Tell them all the time. Pray for them and with them. And just try and be the best I can be

What is one piece of advice you would give your child(ren) that can apply to their entire life?
Be yourself. No matter what there will always be someone to tear you down. God made you just the way you are because you are special to Him just like that. Life comes in seasons… today may be hard, but tomorrow will be better.  Always, always, always, have faith in God. Pray. Have a relationship, not just when you need Him… but always- good and bad. God Loves You.
