raising children


i love my children.i have posted pics of them in my blog before.they are two year old girl and one year old boy.i play with them and spend lots of time with them when i am not working.i didn't have these babies until i was in my thirties which is a good thing because they have my full attention which i doubt they would've had ten years ago due to my wild partying i did back then but thats been out of my system for quite a while before they were born.it isn't a picnic raising children.my two year old is going through the terrible twos.she is into everything,got to where she doesn't mind and is hitting her brother and not sharing toys.then she has screaming fits and stuff.my girlfriend is pulling her damn hair out and so am i,lol.i have a lot more respect now for people raising kids than i use to have.this is a very hard job.the hardest i've ever had but i know i will do my best.

You said it, Mike! Tough job.

The best advice I could give to a young parent is to get a copy of the booklet "1-2-3...Magic" on disciplining and rewarding children. If you follow the procedures to a "T", you will notice marked and permanent improvement in disciplining your children without having to scream at them or spank them. It worked wonders for us when my children were that age. Many people use this "time out" technique, but 90% of them do it wrong...you must follow the rules properly for it to work.

I've lent my copy out several times and someone hasn't returned it. But I'm going to search for it on the net and if I find it I'll post the link here.

Hang in there, Dad...when you put yourself back into the position as "the boss", your job will be easier.

Mike, do a google search on 1-2-3 magic. First page results are what I'm talking about.

Hate to sound like a broken record but this system works wonders.

The most important thing a father can do for his children is to love their mother.

I heard Alan Alda quote that one day years ago and I thought he was the original author of the quote until I double checked it.
