Our Parenting Principles

Parenting is, hands down, the toughest job in the world. Both Scott and I know that being an engaged parent is no small task and that there is no one right way to do it. But after three kids (and making many mistakes and learning along the way), we have discovered a few things that work for our family, most of the time.

Even so, I wanted to share a few ideas with you in hopes that what helped us might help your family too.
