  • Finances – how to teach children about saving, donating, spending wisely, earning potential, patience, etc.
  • Communication – avenues for opening/creating communication with children on important/critical topics – school, dating, drugs/alcohol use, etc.
  • Motivation/work ethic – how to instill a desire in children to be motivated and productive, to want to explore the world around them

Back Link Parenting (September thru to November)

We have decided on the topic of parenthood and parenting for the next few months. We’d love to hear what you have to say about…

…Instilling confidence and responsibility in our children. We know we could profit from the ideas of other parents along these lines. Some possible themes could include financial responsibility, time management, and dealing with friendship/inter-personal conflicts.

We would love not only to hear from parents talking about parenting, but also from children and what they think about parenting.

As always, you should not feel constrained to write only about this topic. We’d love to hear anything at all that you are interested in.

This is a list and short descriptions of various posting you can write at any time:
  • Best 10 Lists: favourite books, favourite authors, sexiest bachelors, funniest moments in television, movies, most touching moments in movies, Worst 10 Lists: the worst untruths politicians have told, the worst movies, songs, lyrics, etc.

  • A day in the life of the president: if you could accomplish one task in this role, what would it be? World peace is excluded… that’s for beauty contest competitors :-).
  • If I could knock on any door: if you could sit in and observe anyone in the world doing their job, which door would you knock on (e.g. the executive office of Green Peace International, the executive director’s office of Harpo Productions (Oprah’s company), captain of a barge on the European cannels, San Diego Zoo veterinarian).
