I read recently that before my first child arrives (this March) I should make sure to do the following.
Find a couple who already are parents and berate them about their...
1. Methods of discipline.
2. Lack of patience.
3. Appallingly low tolerance levels.
4. Allowing their children to run wild.
5. Suggest ways in which they might improve their child's breastfeeding, sleep habits, toilet training, table manners, and overall behavior.
Enjoy it because it will be the last time in your life you will have all the answers.
With that in mind, I decided I should think twice before I weigh in with my two cents on this news article which says spanking does more harm than good. But suffice it to say, my two cents are, “Hey, I turned out okay, spank you very much!” I seem to recall Proverbs has a word or two about this also.
One more thing….Make sure to read the full list of things to do before baby arrives, even if you’ve got kids. This is hilarious. My husband and I are looking to borrow some goats for Lesson #10. Let us know if you have a few to spare.
