When hubby and i became a parent to our only child , who is now a doctor , we both are newbies . But we realized that parenting ability is innate to everyone who becomes a parent . It's up to the parents to embrace it or not .

Yes, parents don't have patterns in raring their children. It is not an easy job to rare them. I have 3 sons and I have no knowledge on how to deal boys because I have only 1 brother, what I did everyday is to talk to them when we eat together and advised them on what to do, ask about there concerns of their daily activities and thanks God, I successfully rare them all.

You are right, Dr.! Parents don't have a pattern, although some share common styles, in rearing their children. When my dearly beloved & I decided to get married, we've agreed we'll have 12 kids. But, sad to say, my Docs advised me not to have another after giving birth to our 3rd baby. She said my heart was no longer that strong to bear the rigors of pregnancy. Call me stubborn, Dr., but I told my dearly beloved that I still wantes more. So, we still had the 4th, 5th & 6th. It was while having the 6th when I felt there was really a need to stop aiming for the other 6 more. How did we manage rearing our 6? It was through an unconditional love for each of them. We accepted each child as different & unique, not to be compared with any among them. We also accepted each child's weakness, in skill/talent/attitude. Oh, got a lot to share about parenting! Ha! Ha! Ha!

Being a parent is scary sometimes, even if we are learning something new. I've learned most parenting books don't prepare someone to be a parent, personal experiences are what help people learn.

Plus each child is different and what works with one child does not work with all children.
