Contagious good parenting

Being a good parent makes a person more attractive to the other parent, and makes the other parent grateful and respectful. Gratitude and respect make it easier to have compassion and patience.

  1. Thank you for sharing this. So true. After being verbally abused at the park yesterday by another mum, I was careful to be extra gentle and caring to my children yesterday. I sure helped them getting over the fear they had (and mine too...)

  2. "Compassion and patience is key to raising great children."

    That note was left, but the author as listed as "Parental Control Software" and had a link.

    I've left the comment in case it was sincere, and removed the link (because it looks like it's about controlling children, with software, or something).

  3. Edith, I added it here: Thank you for sharing it in French!
