~ Parenting Style ~

1. Do you exercise full or minimal control over your child’s / children’s behavior?
A. Claira is only 3 weeks old and because I'm a new mom, I try to figure out what's best and will work for both of us. When she grow up, I plan to exercise full control (in a nice/good way) if possible when it comes to her behavior. We'll see...

2. Do you expect your child / children to obey 100% or let her / him / them do what pleases her / him / them?
A. 100% obedience is nice but you don't know if your child would do what you want them to do. I think that as long as my child won't hurt anybody then she can do what pleases her.

3. Do you welcome discussion or you simply set rules?
A. Discussion is okay so I know her side and she knows my side. I think kids should also learn how to speak up not just follow rules and parents should have time to listen.

4. Do you reprimand?
A. I think so...

5. Do you use spanking for punishment?
A. I'll try not to spank but her Pediatrician said that there are times that I need to spank if she's already 10 yrs old coz that will help her.

6. Do you use some kind of a reward System for motivation?
A. Maybe, depends on the situation. Reward should be a surprise when the child did something good/great. For me the child should learn how to motivate herself/himself and not expecting on any rewards. In that way, the reward is more precious because it's not expected. :-)

7. Do you enjoy being a Parent?
A. Yes and No. Looking at our little one making faces when she's sound asleep or even when she's just sleeping knowing that she's there made me feel great. But I don't like the lack of sleep and when she's fussy. As what others say, its a roller coaster ride. :-)

8. Are you a hands-on Parent or do you have a full-time Nanny?
A. Hands on mom coz it's hard to trust anybody this time plus there's no extra money to hire a nanny. haha

9. At what age would you let your child make simple decisions for himself / herself?
A. When she's capable of making decisions for herself and when she's ready for it. I'll just let her know that mommy is just around the corner if she needs help in decision making. I'm not saying that my decision is perfect but two heads are better than one.

10.Do you and your Husband have the same Parenting Style?
A. No, but before Claira was born we already talked about issues that might happen when she's with us. We agreed to do the things from his side and my side that we think is helpful for our child. In short, our little one will experience the American and Asian parenting style.

~ Wife Style ~

7.How long have you been married?
A. 2 yrs and 6 months

8.How do you feel about being a Wife?
A. Great because I have a good and understanding husband. Naks! ^_^

9.What has been your typical sleeping attire since you got married?
A. The same when I was single, comfortable tops with PJ's or jogging pants.

10.How do you show how appreciative you are of your Husband?
A. I tell him directly and sometimes thru action like a back rub. :-)

11.What do you do when your Husband annoys you?
A. Keep quiet at first and later on tell him what I feel so he knows.

12.You are buying or planning to buy your first house as Husband and Wife.
A. We are planning at the moment and we're hoping to have our dream house next year.

13.How does your house look like at the end of the day when Hubby gets home?
A. Most of the time organize coz I tried to clean up and organize things before he gets home.

14.How do you feel about running a household?
A. Great! :-)

15.What is the sweetest gift you have given your Husband so far?
A. Love, support and understanding him...

I'm tagging all of you who are listed in my blog list. If your a mom/wife.. please do the tag, its fun!!!
