As a parent, what is important to you?
Is it being there for your kids or getting things done so you can have time for yourself?
Is it ensuring they don’t go without, but not spoiling them in the process?
When should your child learn about personal responsibility?
Are you more concerned about the latest gadget or keeping your family clothed and fed?
How will you handle conflict in the family?
If you need to change to be a better parent, can you?
Do you want to be a friend or parent?
Do you have the self-discipline to teach your child self-discipline?
Can you admit your wrong?
Will you allow your child to walk all over you?
Does your child have the right to protest your decisions?
Will you yell first or get quietr first when your kids anger you? Can you guess which will be more effective?
Is not golfing really a sacrifice to attend their soccer game?
Are you and your spouse partners in parenting or constant negotiators?
Do you need to change your answer to some of these questions to be better committed to your children?
Are you willing to admit these changes and ask for and accept help?
No one can make you a better parent, but you.
