    What do you think is one of your child's greatest accomplishments and how proud are you of them?

    I don't care if they are 2 or 52 what is it? OK, now when's the last time you told them how proud you were of just that?

    I am proudest of my teen daughter's character rather than her accomplishments. She is kind, non-judgemental, and compassionate. She will be spending her third Spring break in a dusty tent city in Mexico tending to the poor children there and sharing her Christian faith.  I try to tell her often how special she is to us. smile

      Wow that is probably one of the greatest accomplishments possible and one that lasts a lifetime.  You should be proud especially the way most teens are these days.

    I'm very proud of my little boy overcoming his fears, a few months back he seemed to be affraid of everything, even ants, it was unbelievable... For a moment there, I really worried as I had no idea what else I could do to make it better... My little girl is very independent and that really puts a smile on my lips...

    They are both 4 years old... I'm sure in time I'll add to this list many other accomplishments...

      It really takes a lot of courage to overcome fears, esp when you're young and all is new to you. smile

    Watching them become responsible adults, good parents, kind and caring citizens, and appreciating all that we've done for them.  They never truly recognize all the sacrifices that have been made until they are parents themselves.

      So true and sounds to me like you raised some incredible children, giving you a right to be proud of not only them but you.

    I am most proud that my daughter is bilingual. I've never been able to learn a second language effectively and I love that at 2, she speaks and understands two languages. I realize that it has a lot to do with my husband working with her since birth, but I am still so proud of her for being able to learn both languages and I never pass up an opportunity to brag about it. (So, thanks for giving me another opportunity smile) But seriously, I think she's amazing and I am so proud of her.

      Wow that is something to brag about I'm over 55 and tried numerous times to learn a second language and not gotten very far.  You and Daddy are definitely starting her off on the right track It sounds to me she is set to do wondrous things.

    My son, who is and always will be my only child due to an emergency hysterectomy after his birth, is 5 years old. He just started Kindergarten this year, and what I'm most proud of is his intelligence. Since his birth, I have taken every opportunity that presents itself to give him a learning experience. Every mispronounced word, every lapse in judgement, and even my own mistakes have been used to teach him. I've never tried to stifle him, or make him feel incompetent. Just a gentle reminder if he used improper grammar, for example. Aiden is advanced in his Kindergarten class and is already taking initiative in trying write out words spelled phonetically. He makes me so proud because I know when I look at him and see how well he's doing, that all those times I may have doubted my abilities as a parent or gotten frustrated, I am definitely doing something right. He is my living daily reminder that I can do anything with a little perseverance! I tell him ever single day, multiple times a day, how proud of him I am. It's just amazing to really see how much children can accomplish with supportive parents at their side to guide them.

      What a great picture and your right about children being able to do almost anything with supportive, inspiring, and loving parents.  Sounds like you have been doing just that

    I am extremely proud of my baby boy Isaac. He is only 5 months and started crawling. It melts me whenever I see him smile. I think all parents love seeing their kids learn things.

      Crawling already, that's so awesome and your right parents love seeing their kids learn  new things.

    My oldest, who is dyslexic and had a trying childhood, just finished university as a dental technician, my second is a super graphics designer and my youngest, who is 13 is doing very well in school and is a mature and understanding child. I'm proud of all three because their greatest accomplishment is their kind, loving and caring personalities. Thanks so much for asking.

      Kindness, caring and loving is something which must be received usually to be given which gives you another reason to be proud of not only them but you.

    We are a year in and I'm still proud of her for something new each day. She is so amazing and extremely smart. Her reasoning skills are great in that if something is difficult, she just eliminates the obstacle to make it easy big_smile She really makes me smile and laugh to myself!

      OK number one, what a little cutie and two, you should be proud because she is so smart, so beautiful, and looks like to me a very happy little girl (which usually comes from some very special parents)

    I am proud of my 18 year old son, a freshman in college, who has started his path toward sports broadcasting by reaching out and getting a gig writing for Duke Sports (Duke University). As his mom, I've always known how passionate he is about his favorite college team, but I never knew he had his mom's passion for writing! Now the two worlds have merged for him and he's gaining an immense amount of experience as well as getting exposure from his work. SUPER proud of his hard work and dedication.

      Sounds like a very focused, dedicated, and intelligent young man who will reach his goals with the support you obviously have given, leaving you both with reasons to be so proud.
