Don't you wish that when you became a parent somebody just told you what you needed to do? I think having even a general idea would be great, just something to work off of to know that you're doing a good job. Recently Multiple Mayhem Mamma blogged about five simple tips for being a good parent. While they are simple, I think they are quite helpful and honest. Samantha advises such things as a don't ask, don't tell policy. By this she means don't pry too much into your child's life, know enough to be a good parent but don't be over the top. Also sometimes when you say, "because I said so", that will have to suffice for them. Also she lists "not friend, not foe", on her list, which I love. You are not a parent to be your child's best friend, they have other people to fill that role. You also aren't around to be your child's enemy, and need to find that comfortable role in the middle. Samantha makes some other great points in her blog post that I think all parents should probably read.
