kate5kiwis: Parenting 101


“If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.” — Mitsugi Saotome

Parenting 101

oh, yes, I've got The Power!!!!!
"When you've tidied your room, it can be your turn to read Harry..."
"Please empty the dishwasher, and then you can read Harry."
"Hey, how about you make your bed and adios those dirty clothes and then you can read Harry..."
"Ok, you have a quick shower while your sister finishes the chapter, and then you can read while she hops in..."
Aha, bargaining chips. I'm loving this... while it lasts!

and then perhaps it can be *my* turn to read Harry?!!

Quick, while they still have chapters left, you have time to find the next great book series for them to dive into!

Well I have to cofess the whole HP thing failed to capture my interest but your title brought back a few memories. Do you remember that song The Power by Snap?
**I've got the power**LOL That used to be my best friend at intermediates fave band / song. Thanks for the trip down memory lane :o)
