Wisdom Wednesday: Awesome Sage Parenting Advice and Wisdom of the Day #16

How do you parent? What do you do or whom do you listen to for advice? How do you know what is good and what is bad? It’s a never ending saga, one that I doubt I will ever even come remotely close to figuring out. All we can do is our best, right?

Here’s some sage parenting advice or anecdotes to help you get through it all…kind of.

  1. This is a great one. Too many kids seem to care too much about nonsense, about material stuff, about nothing important. While we don’t practice what we preach nearly as much as I’d like, this is a great quote to parent by. (source)Fill you child's head
  2. This is a great one, too. I need to follow this a bit more. Yes, there needs to be structure and discipline, but maybe sometimes we pick a little too much, expect a little too many things that might not be all that important. (source)Be more positive to your kids
  3. This is pretty funny, actually. Be careful, people…you may raise a writer, or an angry blogger, which there are none of. (source)Better parent writer
  4. Well, I say this about 250 times a day. Is there anything wrong with that? (source)Because I said so
  5. Try to enjoy your kids as much as you can. They are who they are, and they won’t be kids for very long. Note to self. (source)Remember you have a kid
  6. It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men. – Frederick Douglass (source)
  7. The most important thing that parents can teach their children is how to get along without them. Frank Clark (source)
  8. I know I want to have children while my parents are still young enough to take care of them. – Rita Rudner (source)

Here’s some sage parenting advice or anecdotes to help you get through it all…kind of.

  1. Let’s face it, there are more times than we can count where we just don’t think we are getting it right. That’s ok and that’s part of the job. No one gets it right, we can only do the best we can. That’s the beauty of the whole thing.  (source)Difficult to be the parent wanted
  2.  I do this all the time…it works really well…(source)whisper don't yell
  3. This is the truth. It’s an innate, thing (thank God) for most of us. For those that it’s not, I have no respect for you. (sourcebeing-parent-love-quotes-funny-quotes-sayings-pictures-pics
  4. Not sure which animal is better at it, do you? (sourceparenting-fail-24 - monkey and parent
  5. Ain’t this the truth, brother…(sourcefirst 40 years of parenting are hard
  6.  “It kills you to see them grow up. But I guess it would kill you quicker if they didn’t.” ~ Barbara Kingsolver (source)
  7.  “You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.” ~ Franklin P. Jones (source)

Wisdom Wednesday: Awesome Sage Parenting Advice and Wisdom of the Day #14

How do you parent? What do you do or whom do you listen to for advice? How do you know what is good and what is bad? It’s a never ending saga, one that I doubt I will ever even come remotely close to figuring out. All we can do is our best, right?

Here’s some sage parenting advice or anecdotes to help you get through it all…kind of.

1) You have to admit..this is pretty accurate. Kung Fu parenting, ying and yang (source):

Kung Fu parenting

2) So. Many. Noisy. Things. Please, think about it before you buy. Safe gifts lead to sane parents (source):

Liam whistle

3) There are certainly days for both, that’s for sure…but maybe a few more days like the right pic. Maybe. Be prepared for both and you’ll be, relatively, fine. (source)parenting-reality

4) While my kids aren’t driving, man is this true. They can’t seem to find their dirty clothes on the floor in front of them but can figure out a 256 page manual talking about calculus like Minecraft construction projects that would make any master architect blush. (source)

Bergor parenting quote car

5) As tough as this is, it’s the truth. Be loving, be fair, but be a parent. I always say I’m your father and not your friend, but I love you more than anything. (source)

“If you have never been hated by your child, you have never been a parent.” –Bette Davis

6) At the end of the day, this is a pretty good sentiment, love and belief. Can’t really do much better than that. You don’t have to be “perfect,” just care. (source)

“My father gave me the greatest gift anyone could give another person, he believed in me.” –Jim Valvano

Awesome Sage Parenting Advice and Wisdom of the Day #13

How do you parent? What do you do or whom do you listen to for advice? How do you know what is good and what is bad? It’s a never ending saga, one that I doubt I will ever even come remotely close to figuring out. Sure, perhaps I can delude myself into thinking I am the best dada (Caleb’s seeping into my brain) in the world, with no match or peer anywhere. I actually kind of like the sound of that. You can just call me the Big BDitWwNMoPA for short.

Anyway, for those of you that are not the Big BDitWwNMoPA, there may be some hope for you just yet. Here’s some knowledge from a few of my friends, the help you get by…get the pun there?

  1. As funny as this certainly is, and how cool this would be…I mean, c’mon now. Walk a little bit lazy! Or…this is the most ingenius woman in the world:GIFSec.com
  2. Um…and dads…Amen to Bedtime
  3. If we could only parent this well…(credit)Baby Piggy Beer
  4. You know it…or talk on the phone…“The quickest way for a parent to get a child’s attention is to sit down and look comfortable.” ~ Lane Olinhouse (credit)
  5. Sadly…or you could just lie…“A person soon learns how little he knows
    when a child begins to ask questions.” – Richard L. Evans (credit)

  1. “The longer you spend cooking for your child, the less they will like the result.  This is a scientific fact, and ranges from hours spent preparing healthy food (which they hate) to party pies, which are ready in minutes (which they love).  The ultimate expression of this is fast food, and we all know how much kids love that!” Single Parent Families Magazine

  3. “Having children is like living in a frat house – nobody sleeps, everything’s broken, and there’s a lot of throwing up.” ~ Ray Romano
