    I find Ni fascinating. My wife is an INFJ, and although we do not have children yet (and she isn't pregnant) she already has planned out in her head their entire lives. In fact she is already mad at them for being rebellious when they become teenagers. (You think I am kidding, but I am not.)
    Now that is really scary!
    Tell your lovely wife not to worry.
    Not all teenagers rebel.
    Certainly yours won't!
    Family life is bound to be a wonderful experience
    with an ENTP dad and an INFJ mom!

    I didn't realize an INFJ could be so adamant about such things.
    Surely your wife must be a young woman and has not yet learned the hard lesson of life,
    that we don't actually HAVE any control.

    However, I did plan my second pregnancy 3 months ahead of time-
    I mean the date of conception.
    I used a scientific method in order to achieve a boy,
    and I had his name picked out 3 months ahead, too.
    When it got closer to the date, I only had to adjust it by a day or two.
    I wanted a springtime baby so that I could potty train him in the spring/summer.
    I got just what I wanted.

    I'm impressed with how you seem to handle your kids. Actually, I'm just impressed by good mothers, period. What made you decide to get training in how to administer corporal punishment?

    I agree with your methods, even though I've never had kids. Especially that unspoken rules are not punishable, corporal punishment should only be administered for something serious like lying or stealing, and the parent should hug and make up with the child after the punishment, letting the child know the parent loves them very much.

    Almost brings a tear to my eye. This is what I think my parents did with me, and I've always known they love me - that's more clear when I screw up. I love both my parents. My dad loves me and just taught me how to drive. I took my driver's test today and passed. He joked with me that once I got my license I'd want to hang out with my friends all the time and never visit him anymore. I think he was a little worried.

    Parents are gifts. It's awesome that you are one.

    And of course, welcome.

    What happened to "anything that bothers mommy is punishable by any means she deems worth her energy at the time"? Thats how I was raised. *sigh* Too many lucky kids out there, I tell ya.
    Dreams are best served manifest and tangible.

    I accept no responsibility, what so ever, for the fact that I exist; I do, however, accept full responsibility for what I do while I exist.

    Thanks for your lovely and heart-warming note.
    I appreciate the encouragement.

    The reason I decided to get training is because I always knew my parents did it wrong - even when I was a kid.
    I was terrified by the social belief that - we turn out to be like our parents.
    I was even afraid to have kids because I was afraid I would treat them the way my parents treated me.

    We belonged to a church in Maryland where the pastor and his wife specialized in child-rearing teaching.
    We attended 3 of their seminars in about 6-8 years time.
    It was so good to learn "the right thing to do".
    I could feel secure that I knew what I was doing.
    My desire to do it right (and God) gave me the power to control my temper
    when I could feel the stark raving mad witch inside me wanting to come out.
    I never ever wanted my children to experience the violent physical and verbal abuse that I did.
    I think I've made it.
    I only blew it once that I can remember.
    I called one of my sons an "idiot" when he was about 9 or 10.
    And don't you know last year, when I was cleaning the basement,
    I found a notebook with one thing written in it.
    My son wrote down the fact that I had called him that name.
    He obviously was hurt by it.

    I remember at the moment I let the word out of my mouth,
    how I struggled with holding it in or saying it,
    and how I decided to indulge myself in the luxury of the name calling.
    What a fool.

    Just a few months ago, that son who is 17, told me that I am the "most important person" in his life.
    Don't you know I treasure those words in my heart.

    See you around!

    Yeah.
    That's what I experienced, too.
    I don't know why grown human beings think that's okay.

    I don't understand.
    Are you people trying to be unkind on purpose,
    or is it just accidental?
    This is supposed to be the welcome thread.
