Raising Kids

“I spent several years as a single parent after my divorce. I knew I had an important job to do in raising my daughter so I dug deep down and went back to the “old school” ways of discipline. It was the way I had been raised and I turned out OK so I figured if it ain’t broke don’t try to fix it. I had to let my daughter know that although I loved and supported her, I wasn’t her friend and she was going to have live by rules as long as she lived in my house. I also wanted her to see, through me, that no matter what obstacles you may have to face, you can survive.”
