What's Your Mothering Style?
Do your children come to you with concerns and problems?
Yes, absolutely! We love to gab about boys and school.
Not really. They are pretty private about that stuff.
No. We pretty much keep the friend-parent identities separate.
Yep. I love to listen to what is hurting them and help them work it out.
Your child has a big class project due in the next few weeks. What do you do to help her work on it?
I make her do a bit of the project each day. That way, when it's due, she won't be overwhelmed.
I let her take care of it on her own. It's not that I don’t care – I am teaching her responsibility.
I get information from the teacher on how to get an A on the project, then make sure my child does exactly those things.
I take her to the store to get posterboard and the most eye-popping decorations.
When was the last time you and your child bonded?
Within the last month
We go to a movie of his choice on the second Friday of every other month.
We hang out regularly.
I am more of a parent than I am a friend.
Your child gets into trouble at school. How do you handle ?
Taking her aside and telling her what needs to happen now.
Asking for her side of the story to see how it matches up.
Giving him an initial time-out and then grounding him.
Talking to the principal, and later, giving my child a stern talking-to.
Your two children are fighting over a toy. What do you do?
Intervene and try to help them sort it out together
Take away the toy and give the children something else to do
Wait a couple minutes to see if they can work it out on their own
What type of diapers do you use?
Huggies, Luvs, Pampers, etc.
Disposable, but we go for eco-friendly brands.
We have a few cloth diapers, but we use disposable, too.
Pre-folds, diaper covers, and all-in-ones - I have a fluffy stash to die for!
What's the best toy in your kid's closet?
A game we can play as a family.
The best toy turned out to be my smart phone.
Play silks for rainy days, and a pail for making mud pies later.
Dolls for my daughter, cars for my son - something that keeps them busy.
How did you feel on your kid's first day of school?
Where does your family vacation?
At the beach
In the mountains
On a cruise
In the woods
At events, you're the mom...
Cheering on the sidelines.
Snapping like, a million photos.
Waving in the crowd.
Holding back tears.
Sitting and smiling.
