Recent year I became a parent, I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl who's the source of my happiness and strength. I think Im a good mom for her because Im starting to guide her in a good ways and giving her a good shelter, food,listen to her and Ill let her know that whatever she have to say is of importance to me.. I will give her a good future.

Im a very good mother because my 4 yr old daughter told me i was!! LOL She tells me all the time "Mommy your the best" and when she says that it brings a smile to my face every single time I hear it. Im a good mother also because I give her the love, nurturing, & guidance she needs to one day go out into this big world and be a productive member of soceity. I also surround her with positive people in her life...people that tell her she can be whatever she puts her mind too (which is true) I watch what i do and say in every aspect of my life because i know shes like a sponge absorbing all of this. I take very much pride in my job as a mother..its the hardest job ever but its also the best!

Congratulations. I think a good parent is someone who is always there for their children, ensures they are fed and clothed but also teaches them things they need to know so they will grow up to be good people. I have a 7 year old and a 2 year old. They have told me that I am a great mum so it must be true! My children are very polite, well-behaved, respect other people, and are really well mannered. I've never had anyone tell me anything other than how good my children are! Of course, they can be naughty for me but that's ok because then I am the one to discipline them and let them know how to behave with other people. I think they are all positive signs of being a good parent. I still have a few years to go before I can be sure I've done a good job though! I wish you well with yours.

To say I am a good mom to my kids would be downright arrogance. That's in my own opinion anyway, because only our kids can rightly tell us whether we had succeeded in rearing them to be the best persons that they can be. Being a mother for only ten years, it's too early yet to say that I am doing well. Besides, I see myself as but a caretaker of my kids --- they are God's gifts to me. And I do my job by praying for guidance from God to help me be the responsible caretaker that I should be to the gifts He's blessed me with.
