Jeremy and I have a really clear objective for our parenting: we never want to shout at our children.
Before we got pregnant we met with a life coach who encouraged us to identify our parenting goals and we both agreed we never want to have to discipline our children: we want well behaved ones.
Happily, neither of our darlings have given us a moment’s worry. I always watch those other mothers having to shout at their wild kids at Young Ones Yoga on Thursdays and I just feel so bad for them. Ambrose might not be the most enthusiastic boy on the yoga mats but it’s only because he is too intelligent to take direction.
