More thoughts...

I have decided to become a more active parent.

Since my divorce, the kids have been living with their mom. I have been quite busy with my classes and work, and somewhat neglecting my time to spend with my children.

As of now, I resolve to change that.

To be an effective parent, you need to spend face-time with your kids, and show them that you not only provide for them, but that you want to take an active and vital role with them as well.

I am going to be there for my kids. I am going to provide for my kids. I am going to show to them that regardless of my situation or problems, they are going to take precedence in my life, and that because of them they are helping me to change my life.

My kids are my life. They are my muse. They are my reason.

How about yours?

Awesome! That's the role that my daddy has in mine, and I can't express how much I love him, or how important he is in my life!
Good job!
Live up to those words, and make it happen! :)

I have four adult children...and can honestly say they are worth every moment you can give them. It is not always easy...but they need us to be consistent. I had to apologize many times to them for my mistakes (being a single parent is not easy) now as adults, they are so grateful for the good I taught them. As for the crap... they choose not to repeat it :)
Be strong!

Your kids are worth it... your lifetime relationship with them is worth it!
