What Kind?

We had our first session for parenting last night. Wow! Hugh....good, but wow! We were guided to come up with a mission statement of how Jason and I want to be as parents. We said something like the following in simpler terms:
1) To reflect God's love
2) To build confidence in our child

In all we do and all we say whether it's to our child or to one another Jason and I need to make sure that those things are reflecting God's love and building confidence in them.

We are going to try to go through 10 sessions on how to be a better parent, and also to make sure we agree on parenting styles. We know there is no manual and we know you do best when you are actually in the situation. We also know that we need to make sure we are on the same page with expectations, discipline, communication, exec. I am excited to go through these sessions, yet I realize wow, what a responsibility!
