Early in our marriage, we adopted several strategies which have helped our marriage stay strong over the years. Surprisingly, those rules have proven to be just as effective as "parenting rules".
We may not agree with his messy room, leaving dishes on the counter or forgetting to brush is teeth, but is it worth arguing over? To some parents, that answer is yes - but not us!
The most important aspect we look for in Jackson is that he is making "good decisions" everyday of his life like who his friends are, for example. Is he thoughtful and kind to others? Does he have a heavy heart when he see's something sad? Does he respect his elders? Does he stick up for the kid who is being bullied? Does he comfort a classmate when he see's her crying? Does he enjoy going to church? Does he enjoy volunteering his time in our church? As we have witnessed Jackson doing all the above it makes us feel that we are doing a pretty good job as his parents!
