What type of parent are you? - An Invitation for Pinoy Parenting Blog Carnival 6th edition

I would like to reserve this post as an invitation for Pinoy Parenting Blog Carnival (PPBC) 6th edition. I choose this question as a lesson to learn from parents with children of all ages.

I know all of us are trying to be the best parent in the world, but what kind of parent are you? Are you the type of mother who is willing to leave your young ones to a nanny in exchange of a decent job? Or do you prefer to be a housewife taking care of your children personally? Are you a strict parent watching every move of your child, to make sure that she is not doing anything wrong? Or are you letting your child do his thing and just be there when he needs help?

How do you discipline your children? Do you spank them when you think it is necessary, or do you always keep your composure? Can you scare them by just looking in their eyes, or do you still need to practice your vocal cords?

If you are a father like me, will you impose stricter rules to your daughters and will be quite loose to sons?

What are the things you think you should improve as a parent, if there is any? What are your best and worst characters as a parent?

If you are a parent of new born babies or a first time parent to-be, what type of parent would you want to be?

Ask all of these and other related questions to your self and feel free to share them to the world. I am sure that different parents have different styles on how to handle children, especially the growing ones.

I hope this topic is interesting enough, and can attract a lot of entries just like the recent one.

Hi.....let me answer to the question you have asked in the heading 'what type of parent are you?'

I am very strict but at the same time, lenient with my one and only child, my daughter. Again, at the same time, I am her only and only friend. Where strict, where lenient and where friendly, it is difficult to categorise it.

But, I think I am really a good mother.......she always says she will never get a good mom like me and that I don't have the 'I am the mother' air around me. Not only she, her friends also say that they wish their mothers are like me.

So, I guess.....I am okay.

This is such a thought provoking site. Even though I'm 62 a grandma and great grandma I find myself wondering if I did everything I could for my family. My daughter is 42 and has 7 children and 4 grandchildren. This family can keep everyone busy.

It never hurts to think about who you are and what you might want to improve. Good luck with your questions.
