The best parenting advice I ever got…

Posted by Samantha on February 26, 2011 in Thought for the day |

The best parenting advice I ever got was from a labor nurse who told me the following:

1. After your baby gets here, the dog will just be a dog.

2. The terrible twos last through age three.

3. Never ask your child an open-ended question, such as “Do you want to go to bed now?” You won’t want to hear the answer, believe me. “Do you want me to carry you upstairs, or do you want to walk upstairs to go to bed?” That way, you get the outcome you want and they feel empowered.
