In this month’s Aspire Parent Group discussion we asked some great questions and got even better answers from our superstar parents!
These young mothers are full of words of wisdom! Here are the questions we asked them and some of their answers:
“What do you teach your children about making friends and being a good friend?”
o Modeling- Be an example. If you are a good friend then your children will be good friends too.
o Treat others the way you would want to be treated
“Who do you have the most fun with and how does that impact your parenting?”
o Anyone easy going who understands that kids will be kids. They don’t judge you or your kids
o Anyone in the same boat as you are
o Parents and in-laws are a the best because you can ask them questions and get advice
o Other moms, they are really fun to talk to while the kids are playing. We form our own community within a community
“What role does the internet play in your social connections?”
o Helps you keep in touch with family and friends who do not live close. This way everyone can see your baby’s first steps. It keeps them updated
o Good for organizing groups for parents and kids!
o Good way to share and keep memories
This monthly group is a great way for parents to learn and grow from each other. It is also a great way to get free babysitting for an hour, plus free children’s books!
