A Good Parent is…


I have been thinking recently about what makes a good parent. Here is a list of good attributes I feel a parent should possess. It is not the most complete list and some could be combined or more added and subtracted. I will be going over each of the points in detail in the coming days.


A good parent…

  1. Is available.
  2. Is loving but firm.
  3. Is willing to ask for help.
  4. Is the grownup not a friend.
  5. Loves without conditions.
  6. Is consistent.
  7. Has a plan.
  8. Takes care of their kids needs, they know their kids needs.
  9. Celebrates success and doesn’t hold to hurts and mistakes.
  10. Is not afraid to admit mistakes and move on.
