Raising children isn't easy whether you have one child or five children. It takes patience and lots of love regardless of the number of children you have and the money to feed and clothe them. But what I have found that was the most important part of raising children is being there and listening to them. I have four wonderful children and yes they have their share of problems both emotional and physical but during their entire lives I have been there loving them, listening to them, guiding them, and showing them the important things in life.
Yes disapline is important, they must know their boundries but they also need to know that no matter how bad they are that you will always love them unconditionally. Be there for your kids, listen to them and let them know you love them. A wise person once said 'Love is the key to the Universe.' I truly believe that. Everyone has their way of raising happy wonderful children, well this has been mine and I am proud to say they are perfect wonderful people.
