Parenting Manifesto
Brian over at Rebel Dad has started a new Parenting Manifesto project. You can find Brian's top 10 manifesto points here. I've added to them:

11. Don't feel guilty about your parenting choices. If you want to work, do it and be proud. If you want to stay home, do it and be proud. What's best for you is best for your family.

12. Learn to say "I'm sorry." We all make mistakes and teaching your children by example to take responsibility for their actions will be invaluable.

I'm sure I could think of more but I'm just doing a quick post today.

What's your "parenting manifesto?"

Edited to add:
For those of you who can't seem to post comments here, it's not just you! Apparently Blogger knows about the problem and is trying to fix it. Hopefully, I won't shrivel up and die from comment withdrawal in the meantime.

From Blogger's Known Problems page:
Logging in with an old Blogger account to post a comment on the new Blogger is giving a “please try again later” error. Until we fix this, it may work to log in first at http://www.blogger.com/login.g, and then go to the comments page on the new version of Blogger in beta. — latest update on Thursday, December 14, 2006

Hey me tooo...
Lawyer Mama... I have tried so many times to leave comments to let you know I was here and it would not let me...

The comment suckage has really, really sucked, hasn't it? As far as I know, though, it also works to choose "Other" or "Anonymous."

Made it back! (But I do not have Blogger as an excuse -- I was just in working hell.)

Love the manifesto idea, and love being back here in your blog corner.

Saying I'm sorry is definitely important. I think my kids need to know I'm not perfect but that I'm trying my best.

I try to point out to my kids when I make mistakes and let them know it's all right, even Mom is only human. One big Manifesto-esque area I've been working on:

13. Try to slow down and enjoy the simple moments as they come, as they are slipping away so fast. Laugh instead of yelling, appriciate a new drawing fresh from the crayon- the laundry will always be there later.
