My parents are pretty great. There are things I like about them and how they parent me, and there are things I don’t like. I think I’ll be a good mom and hopefully I’ll make good kids. When I’m a parent, I will probably not let my kids have any electronics whatsoever (maybe a calculator and an alarm clock but that’s basically it.) They will have pets and toys and each other to entertain themselves with. Don’t get me wrong, I love my phone and TV and I don’t wish this fate upon myself but I think technology is ruining everything. My kids’ generation will most likely be so deranged because of phones and TV and media. But my children will be divergent and intelligent and their pupils won’t be dilated and they will have good posture.
I will probably home school my kids through about 8th grade and send them to actual school for high school. You may ask, “Why do you want to do that, Kolaiah?” Because age 0 through 13 are prime years for essential development of a good personality, disposition, and walk with God. I will also do activities and things to lead my kids to Jesus. I don’t know how, considering I’m personally not good at it, but I’ll cross that tightrope when I get there. My children and I are going to explore the world, play hooky, go on picnics, and bond like crazy as they grow up and I will not leave them to figure everything out on their own with the beasts of this world – AKA: public schoolers.
I hate hurting people, but my kids will be spanked (probably by my husband) like my parents did for me. I got spanked a lot when I was young, I think up until I was 12 years old. (I was sort of an evil child.) But I can say that I wouldn’t be who I am today if my parents had let me do what I want and get what I want. Another thing, I’m not going to spoil my children. They will work for things and I will definitely have more than one kid cause only childs don’t always turn out right (please don’t be offended if you’re reading this and you’re an only child, I’m obviously not referring to you.) I think you learn many lessons and good character traits from siblings.
My family is going to laugh all the time, sometimes cry, and we’ll love each other tons and eat organic.
