I Believe in Thoughtful Parenting

Not everyone can be a parent. But everyone of us had been a child. And more often than not, we are the products of our parent's decisions and upbringing. However we behave in this world, is a result of our environment and what our parents did to equip us for such environment. Because of this, I closely research on human development and constantly try to come up with the best ways I could raise my daughter, Ella.

Come to think of it, if every parent take the effort of thoughtfully raising a child or children, the world will be a better place to live in with individuals who know how to successfully co-exist. Imagine a world where everyone knew how to love and be loved...Give and receive...Consider and be taken into consideration...Respect and gain respect... All because the parents took the extra mile to teach and lead by example.

It doesn't mean that only one parenting style will have to be applied on everyone. And it doesn't have to mean that the success or failure of the child would be solely dependent on the parenting style. As long as each parent's actions are carefully made in consideration of how it could affect the child and his/her future, everything else will follow. I can't say that I have always done the right things for Ella, but at least I did something.
