Number 1 Parent
Your parenting style is the best for your family.
Adele Hamilton, Editor Parent24 (Tammy Gardner)
And the 100% correct way to be a parent, I will now reveal. Ready? Here it comes...

Nah, only kidding. It's not that easy. Most of what we believe to be the "right" way to do things is opinion, soaked in from our own folks. And in my case attending a plethora of parenting courses at an impressionable stage.

There are a few things I personally believe are not negotiable:
* A safe, non-abusive home.
* Offering healthy food.
* Providing education so that little minds can be fed.
* Lots of hugs and other expressions of love.

But the rest of what I believe is pretty much open to debate, I think.

What are your non-negotiable parenting choices? Let us know.
