Life is fragile and we only get a short time to live with our children full time. I urge you to think ahead about the day they leave for some version of adulthood and what you will regret doing or not doing while you had them at home. Pick your battles and pick your adventures with your children. Will a clean room really matter down the road or will having a home filled with love, kindness, and the periodic donut be what all of you remember?
Are you thinking of making some parenting changes for 2013? Don't change these!
