have you performed your duties as a parent to your child? have you provided the things your child needs? have you shown love unconditionally? how could you say that you were a good parent to your child?

i am a single mom of four children. but i think the child must be the one to tell if their parents are good parents or not. sometimes children have different views on this matter. as far as i am concern i always put my children first before what i want. i make sure they have a good shelter and healthy food to eat. i may not give what other parents can like celphone or gadgets because i am a single mom but i make sure my children comes first before anything.

Well, we all make mistakes at some point in our parenting, but in all i feel like I am a pretty good mother. I make sure my children have everything they need and sometimes the things they just want. I have food on the table three times a day with snacks in between. I make sure that they have clothes on their back and a roof over their head and i spend as much time with my children as possible. I have three, one who is two years old and demands alot of my time, but I always make sure that I spend time with my two older to let them know that they are loved and that i love spending time with them. Sometimes i yell a little to much after a stressful day, but at the end of the day my children know that i love them more than anything and that i pray for them and their protection constantly. God bless

yes. you really cant stop yourself from yelling at your children. parents cant be really as perfect as kids want to be. bonding with children is the best way to get to know and get closer with them.. God bless your family!

may be I'm not a good parent in other people views. But I have performed my duties to my children, I provide their needs and I love them. i care for them. I will sacrifice if I need to. I have done everything for them. I did all this for their good. What else is missing? Was'nt it enough? I want them to be good person, get a good job and caring.

every parent must have really performed their duties to their children but there are instances that might still be missing. i guess you have been a great mother to your children. it will be shown when your child grows up having a well rounded and disciplined personality. right?
