I want the best for my kids... I try not to be The Great Santini... hopefully I am nothing more than the "Tiger Dad"

thanks Gibby for the push!

I try to push my kids
it seems that everything is at gunpoint
nothing is done without several requests
then yelling and ultimatums

parenting is not as easy as I thought it would be


I struggle with parenting
I coach my younger son's soccer team
I try to foster my children's interests
I do my best to give them the launching pad to take on the world

I believe that there are some basic things a child must learn
all the tools for school... reading, writing, appropriate behavior and such
then for sport... running, swimming, riding a bike, skiing, and ice skating are the core to their athletic and healthy future

not one of these things happens without one of the children offering up opposition
