How is your relationship with your kids?
Parenting is growing to be an ever discussing topic everyday. Whenever we are talking, you get to see people talking about one topic or another on parenting and one of them is the type of relationship that can exist between the parents of a child and their kids.

While some think that it is going to be fine and cordial, others think it should be one that got some distance and some mean faces. How do you think the relationship will look like?

Actually i am a teen and i don't have a kids of course but i just want to share my relationship with my siblings. We siblings are so comfortable to each other and we laugh together even in a small things but sometimes we argue in such things. I know that some people are not that close to their parents and siblings and i feel bad to them because in our family, even our parents laugh with us and jokes sometimes and that's what makes my day so happy.

How is your relationship with your parents? Is it cordial? Do you think they are too hard on you? These are some of the important issues in this discussion. When you become a parent, what sort of relationship do you want with your children?

That's how it should be you play and joke with your kids in a very firm way. I know kids can really be handful sometimes but we shouldn't be mean to the them it can affect them psychologically.

I am a young adult but I don't have kids and I am not planning to have one yet. Parenting is not an easy thing to do you need to give your 99 percent effort to your children and only 1 percent of effort to yourself. I have a lot of respect to a parent who is working hard for there kids they are a true hero in my opinion.

I don't have any kids by I have a 4 years old little sister who is very close to me and I can say we have a great relationship.

Parents are really admirable for their dedication in raising their children. I just am very angry to the parents who let their children work and beg on the streets

Parents are great. Mine bright me up in a friendly yet stern atmosphere. I bring my children in a cordial relationship too. I have not done bad with them. Some have got married and are doing fine

Keep loving your kid sis, it help create a bond between you two. Loving your sibling should come naturally without any bad effect or rancor. I care alot for my younger ones.

I don't have any kids. But, I have a little sister, an I treat her well, but we never spoil her. We always make sure that she's loved but, at the same time, we always put in her mind that the things that she wants can't always be her if she demands. She has to earn it, and she has to understand that we are not rich to get what she wants.

What if your parent? You must have a form of relationship with them. How is it? Is it cordial or harsh? Do you like the relationship?

Since my kid is in high school now, I am figuring out how to make my kid believe that I am loosening the reins. I want her to feel that I believe she will do the right thing when needed so she can trust herself as well. I believe I'm her best friend but we all know how teenagers are so I guess I'm not allowed to say that.

Am getting confused. You say you are best of buddies and also say you are loosening. It means you have been tough with her. Now you want to loosen up since she is in high school. How is the relationship?

Teenagers can be so funny at times and this is really the period that parents don't really know how to handle them but they just have to. No more controlling and the kids need some freedom and parent should just blessed them with a little of it.

I am not a parent yet but I do love kids. I make them laugh, play around with them for a while and make sure they are in a happy mood always. Kids should be brought up in the environment where they are not under any pressure and allow the free flow of thoughts.

I believe you. A conducive environment makes kids grow very well. Too harsh conditions may make a dent in their lives

I am not married yet and don't have kids yet either. Parenting is not an easy task. It is not a walk in the park. I've been a preschool teacher for five years and my love for children makes me enjoy my previous job. Being a second parent for them gives me the experience of the joy and the difficulty handling the children. Though the challenges are great, the rewards are even greater. After that, I become a Facilitator for a Family Develop Session and that new heights of my ministry helps me understand more how to become a parent. I can say that I am blessed to have that experience and I consider that as God's preparation for me in the near future.

It is good you are practising earlier. You will be a great parent when you have kids of your own .

Well i am not a parent myself but i can share my experience regarding my relationship with my Parents. I would say that whatever success that i have been able to achieve in my life is due to my upbringing and the set of values that were inculcated in me by my parents right from my childhood. I think that parenting is one of the most challenging and also very rewarding job at the same time. One has to do a lot of sacrifices in the personal life for the children in order to become a good parent.

I have nieces and nephews and I treat them well. They were around 4 to 6 years old and most of them go to our hose to watch television or ask for foods.

My children are still young but I think our relationship is good. I spend a lot of time with them and we are often engaged in play or reading, or spending time outdoors.

Creating simple but pleasant memories is something I hope I can achieve with them.

It's going well. They're all open about the events in their life. They tell me what's up and what's down. They like telling me about their day and I enjoy listening to them. They're pretty open about their problems or if something is bothering them. Being there for your kids is enough, giving them a secure and safe environment is one of the keys to ensuring a nurturing bond with them.

I am not yet a parent but I want to have the best relationship with my children when I eventually become one. I want to be the shoulder they can lean and cry on when the world seems against them. I want to be the one they tell about all their happy times. I want us to enjoy our good times together and be there for one another during the bad times. I also want to be the best discipline master they know in the world.

How is your realtion with your kid: I had a 1 daughter but the saddest part we are not together now, she is in my parents house and she still a toddler, I need to work for her and for our family even it was really hard for me as a mother to leave my child I do manage to make my self strong just for her. Everytime I read this kind of topic I can't help my self to cry because i really do miss her a lot. I do hope that I can be with her starting next year untill she grow up.

Since I'm still not a parent, I can't actually say that it can be accurate but I think we need to communicate with our children and feel to them that we care for them. If ever I would be a parent soon, I will tell him the difference between good and bad for him/her know at young age how they work with things in good and ignore those bad doings. I will also discipline them to be good follower of God and to parents so that they will become independent in the future.

I actually have no kids to speak of but maybe I can share my sister’s way of taking care of her kids. I had noticed that my sister is very protective of her kids that she would bring them to school and pick them up at dismissal. Now the youngest is 23 years old but couldn’t commute to work by herself. She needs her mother to bring her to the office and also to pick her up. That also goes with the son who is 27 but is still very dependent on his mother. I guess my sister was wrong in the upbringing of her children.

I don't have any kids yet but someday, I would like to be their bestfriend in times of their need. I would like to be someone whom they can talk everything about as if they are just sharing their problems with their friend and receive advices not just as a parent but also as a friend. Also, I will establish an open communication relationship where they would not prefer to keep things within them because they knew that they could trust us, their parents. I never experienced such thing before, so I that's what I would like to do for my future children.

Don't have kids yet but I don't like kids in general, they annoy me a lot especially when they're being too noisy in public or a place where they're not supposed to be in and I've seen a lot of kids that are being homophobic, it's sad. So for now, I don't have plans on having kids, I need to get better in life first like financially stable/secure.

Being financially stable before having kids is a good choice, you should make sure that you can give your children a better future and you are up to taking on that responsibility before thinking of having one. Now, I know that you feel that way right now but that will slowly change as you get older and start to want a family of your own.

My parents were never mean to me and I will try not to mean to my kids. It takes nothing to be nice to our kids. I know kids can be very naughty but notwithstanding, parents should be friends with their kids.

When I'm with my nieces and nephews we use to watch anime, play hide and seek or sometimes do baking. It's good to be with them because they uplift your mood even if sometimes you will be annoyed or get at them. But I love my nephews and nieces.

I don't have kids but I'm just going to relate it to my relationship with my parents. My relationship with my parents are amazing not that we are so sweet to each other but the understanding that we build and the love that they give to me by taking care of me which I am very grateful about, I also love them unconditionally and take care of them, we just love each other and I can't imagine life without them.

I have the same relationship with my parents where we don't show that much affection but understand each other and know that we can rely on one another in any struggle we may face. Love can be express in different ways and in small ways that only family members can fully understand.

I spend the entire day with my daughter (she's 2 years old), so I'd say it's wonderful. Hopefully it will stay the same as soon as she grows up and goes to school. Because I'll be spending less time with her, and to be honest, I'm afraid to trust her into the hands of our modern society. It's scary.

When she starts going to school it will be a great experience for you, you will see the progress that she will make daily, from socializing to academics. They will have a lot of questions so be ready, I accidentally slipped up the other day and said a curse word around a 4 and a 6 year old and they asked what was the meaning of it and I had a really hard time explaining to them.

I don't have kids yet but I can relate to this question because I have a 4 year old niece who lives with me and a 6 year old cousin who I can almost consider my daughter. I was there when she was born and I was the one who had to bring her to another hospital for her to live. I have grown attach to her and she even calls me a slang form of daddy that she invented which I won't mention. For now, I think our relationship is great and hopefully it continues to be that way well into their teen years and into adulthood.

Let me say my side about this matter. From the beginning, I just realized that my siblings and I grew up being somewhat neglected. We didn't know that of course, we were young. My elder sister took care of our grandparents as a young child and was even mentally and emotionally abused. My younger brother and I were brought up with housemaids, there were some instances that I hated. Like locking my brother inside a dark a room when he was still so small to reach the lights himself, as the victim I didn't think he did deserve it. Now with my mother.... We speak with her, yes. However, it is not as close as one would expect. She wouldn't really consider our feelings at times though when truly needed. This lead to some unfortunate situations. She is stubborn. I don't know.. I know she loves us and we do love her.. really. Just that, there is no intimacy like parent child when we are far apart... I don't know.. it's confusing. She prioritizes what is in her heart instead.
