Parents' Bill of Rights

This is a continuation of my last article. When that new baby comes home we fall in love with the little miracle and want everything to be perfect. Sometimes we set ourselves up for difficult times when we are not reminded that we also must be "parents", those people who help shape the potential of a life. We also forget we have needs and that by having some boundaries, we teach healthy boundaries to our children by the only real way.....modelling it.

1. Even though you are a parent, you have rights.

You have a right to a good night's sleep.

3. You have the right to:
a.a clean house
b.cooperation and courtesy

4.Loving your child is no excuse for accepting rude,violent inconsiderate behavior.

5. Make sure that your rights are respected. You cannot expect others, even your children, to respect your rights if you do not.

Happy Birthday to my newest grandchild, Tanner Madrid Hall, born this Oct. 29 at 8:49 p.m. ( He is number six! )
