How are we , as parents, helping our kids get ready for life on their own?
By teaching them the basics, like how co cook, wash their own clothes, etc.

2) Your opinion on the approach we take nowadays on disciplining our children.
I think kids have been given too much power in some areas, especially in schools. I don't agree with hitting or beatings like my generation was subjected to, but who knows maybe some parents know their children better than the system does.

3) How did you handle the " empty-nest"syndrome? ( or how do you think you will someday if your kids are still at home)

I have 5 more years to go. I think I'll be very sad.

4) How does TV affect our lives today?

In every way. It is such a mind controlling format. A lot of what we see unfortunately determines how we live, what we buy, eat, wear, and how we act.

5) How would you occupy yourself if you had to go without TV for one day?

I do this a few time a month and I actually get a lot done. I get a lot of papers done, work on my writing skills, read, do crafts, and come up with good ideas.


6) How could you make this year's Thanksgiving celebration more special as a family?

I wish all my family could get together but we all live far apart. So the few who gather enjoy playing games and laughing.

7)What makes a great parent?

Being able to listen and really hear what your child is saying. Being there when they need you and knowing when to back off and let them figure out some things on their own.
