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, 2006Damn them!
