Parenting personality is something that is interesting to me. Maybe I am wrong but I think that there are basically three parents within each of us.
1) The parent that we want others to think we are.
2) The parent we wish we could be.
3) The parent we are.
This isn’t to say we can’t be the same thing for each or some combination of the three. The problem comes when we try to be something we aren’t and our wish is above what is even possible. That makes the parent we are progressively worse.
Most likely we are all painfully average. I don’t think I am average but that is probably an average thought.
I put together a quick ten question survey on some kid related parenting issues and we can see how everyone falls in the range of normal parenting. As always it is anonymous so feel free to be yourself.
Hopefully the survey is more fun that informative. I will give it about a week and post the results. And for everyone who participated in the other Inappropriate Questions Survey I had several that were entered and didn’t make it in the first round, I am considering the wave of unfollows I might have for posting some of the questions but I promised not to censor so maybe a disclaimer would help. We’ll see.
