A Fine Parent

What makes someone a fine parent?

A Fine Parent

Who should determine if someone is a fine parent? Better yet, what is the definition of a fine parent. To start off.

A fine parent to me is someone who is raising a child, whether it be their biological child or not, by providing all the necessary needs a child is supposed to have in their life. This consists of shelter, food, love, and discipline. If you are providing those four factors for your children, then I consider that to be fine parenting.

Unfortunately, I am nobody and do not have the authority to judge anyone on their parenting skills. The child also is who determines 5he character of themself as an adult later in life. A child that is raised having shelter, food, love, and discipline should grow into a fine adult, right?

Wrong! The child is expected to grow into a fine adult, but there are circumstances when they do not. A child's environment and genetics also are factors that contribute to children becoming fine adults.

A parent can provide the shelter, food, love, and discipline and the child could grow into a troubled adult. Environment, such as peers, culture, and stability, can cause that child to become troubled.

Genetics plays a huge role in determining the type of adult the child will grow into. Mental illness can affect how the child's brain accepts the necessary factors every child needs.

We all question our parenting skills at one point in our lives. Am I a fine parent? What I can say about that is yes you are us you have provided all the necessary needs for your children and you have done all you know to the best of your ability for your children.

Sometimes it is out of a parent's control on how their child turns out to be as an adult. Provide those four factors. the environment and genetics sometimes can not be changed. Every ccj old should grow into an adult with their own personality. Not one the same.

Therefore, do not question yours or anyone else's parenting skills in how a child behaves. Assess the whole situation, and give from there. If all your children grow up and have been provided all the needed factors equally amongst one another and they all have their own unique personality, then you are a fine parent.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
