Renee is a stay at home mother of 3 rambunctious children! Their names are Ayden, Tamryn, and Jasper. She loves her children dearly!

Is there really such a thing as a perfect parent? The world is full of many types of people with very different parenting styles. So ask yourself this, is there really such a thing as perfect parenting? No. Everyone is different. Most people will grow up to raise their kids just like their parents raised them. Most experts will say we incubate our parents habits in some form or another.

I believe that there are certain aspects of parenting that must always be done to keep a child happy.

1. Build their self esteem.

2. Make time for them.

3. Practice unconditional love.

1. Build their self esteem.

Make sure you always tell them what a good job they're doing when they do something right. Praise them when the praise is needed. Children love to be praised. High fives, clapping hands, a simple "yay!". They love to know that they are doing the right thing.

2. Make time for them.

Always show them that no matter how busy your life is, you will always have time to play with them or talk to them. Be there for your children. You are their super hero, their idol. They need to know that no matter what mommy/daddy will always be there for them.

3. Practice unconditional love.


The MOST important rule I live by. Unconditional love. No matter what happens, wether you have a fight or falling out. No matter the age of your child. ALWAYS show them that you will love them no matter what happens between you. We are here to love and guide our children. Don't ever let them think you don't love them. Even if they say those awful words " I hate you!". Don't give into their anger. Let them know that you still love them.


I'll tell you a little about myself. First, I am in no way the perfect mother. I got pregnant with my oldest son when I was 17 years old. I was scared, but I was also happy. I knew I wanted to continue with school, so I did. I knew what I wanted to do with my future, but I put that on hold so I could prepare someone else future. My son was born on October 23rd 2015. I named him Ayden. His birth was a very scary thing for me to go through but I would not change that for the world. He was dying inside of me but there was nothing I could do besides sit around and wait... Finally the doctors came in and told me they needed to do an emergency c-section. 'What?! You're going to cut me open?!!" was the only thing I could think of at that moment. I cried. A lot. But in the end I have my beautiful son. Life has gotten pretty rough since then but I wouldn't trade it. I'm still learning and there's till a lot more time left for me to learn and to grow. I can't wait to see what a great man my son will grow to be one day. We will never be able to explain why we do the things we do for our children to people who do not have any. They won't understand and there is no point in trying to explain to them.

I am by far perfect. I've made plenty of mistakes in my parenting. I've let my son fall, he's gotten hurt because of me. Children get hurt. They fall, they get bumps, they get bruises. It's all a part of life. But at the end of the day when you can lay in bed and your little ones are tucked away in their beds, your only thoughts will be "FINALLY".

Just kidding. But seriously, at the end of the day everything will be worth it. You got to see those smiles, those happy tears, the excitement. Each and every day I try my best, I know I'm not perfect but I do my best and you should too.


Please, don't ever doubt yourself. If things go wrong, keep your chin up. You don't NEED to be a perfect parent because no such thing exists. We all make mistake and we will continue to make mistakes through ours and our child's life. What matters and what is most important and that you try each and everyday to give your child(ren) the best possible life you can give them.

My happy little family
