What is something you did as a parent (or caretaker) that you felt really worked out well/paid off?

Not freaking out when Drake falls. Of course I worry and inside I am like OMG OMG OMG, but when he falls now, he is up faster then he fell and just continues doing what he was doing. I like that. I see babies is age fall and cry and look around for the parent. Not Drake. I am pretty proud of that.

Hmm... well I guess there are the little things like politeness. I always try to remember to say please and thank you to kids, and they pick it up pretty quickly. Helping a child learn anything is really great - I loved helping a little girl learn how to read. It was difficult at times but we stuck with it.

I don't think any one thing I've done has been more gratifying than just walking into a room and seeing their face light up with the biggest smile at seeing you. That is a feeling you can't measure

The gentle parenting. It really really shows with Eliana. If I lose my temper there's an obvious regression and you have to gently build her back up. I can't imagine what a mess things would be with her if I parented traditionally.

I would say the gentle parenting too, not getting worked up when he did. Teaching and guiding rather than "enforcing". I think it makes me a better mom being understanding and soothing.

Ya know, I have to give us ladies props. It takes a lot to not get worked up in stressful situations. Being AP is not always easy. It takes a strong person to do it. Most of it is very natural, well almost all. But it's so easy to snap sometimes and the fact that we as parents can be patient and allow our children to learn and make mistakes and explore through touch and not be yelled at, well that is amazing.

I completely agree with that! A friend of mine was in awe when I told her how Gary was screaming one day allllll the way home a 25 minute drive and I was telling I sang to him talked to him and whatnot. After checking to make sure nothing was hurting him or anything. He just did NOT want to be strapped down. She was like OMG thats when I would have been like OMG ENOUGH! I was like okayyyy. lol

I agree with the gentle parenting and how calm I am. I think that I am so loving and caring towards them really shows. They are so sweet and loving towards each other. They always are giving each other hugs and saying love you. They don't fight and they share everything so well. Callen doesn't like to do anything without Kellsey and if he has something he always makes sure there is enough to share with her. It makes me so proud whenever I see them together.
