Parenting: Child-Rearing Method

Good Essays
Parenting (child-rearing method) – I believe that every child is different. If one child needs a time- out, then that will happen. Therefore, the way we will discipline depends on the child. Of course, nothing too extreme and we will have to set limits on the way we discipline. I would want my spouse to have a different method of punishing because if one way does not work, there has to be another way. Overall, we are a team and we have to conduct strong, independent, mindful, respectful, and ambitious future adults.

The Future– I want to know what my spouse thinks we will be doing years from now. If they’re marrying me for the wrong reason, I do not see us moving forward. For example, if they want to marry me for the money or just because, I could not allow myself to continue on in this marriage. Premarital counseling- I would want to do premarital counseling, so that we have an understanding of what we want and we can go over this contract before we happily wed.
