What is a parent? I only know what my parents were to me and some of what my friends parents were to them. Now I'm a parent. I'm a father to, for me, the most amazing girl that has ever lived. I'm sure that's pretty much the same with any parent towards their kid and how my parents feel about me(at least most of the time, lol). Before I lose my train of thought, I don't know what exactly makes a good parent. We all have our opinions on the matter. For me, I just want to be there for my daughter. I want to make sure I spend every moment I can with her and share as many experiences as possible. I want to be her rock, her home base, her standard for how she is treated, her mentor, protector and a dozen other things that she'll need as she grows. She's not even 5 months old yet and has already taught me more than I could have ever imagined.
So what is a parent? My mother, father and stepfather were and still are the greatest and most important people in my life. A childs parents are just that. The greatest people ever! Be the greatest person you can be to your kids because no one will ever be more important.
