Hola! Greetings! Приветствия!
Is this my first community post, introductory post? Probably smth like that. I already had one on the steemit blockchain, two years ago, I thought we could not have another one, but here we go! Now we have a beautiful community mechanism, and here we go. I introduce myself once again. My warm greetings to all Parents of the Steemit blockchain.
Successful parenting is a very important issue (and a sore question) for me. I myself was born into an incomplete family, and I did not had a sufficient positive example before my eyes, when I was a kid myself. I still don't consider myself a good parent. My current family is my wife and our only child, who is rapidly approaching to her the dangerous teenage season. Old incapacitated parents of my wife also live together with us ... and the best member of our family, who always knows what to do and does everything right, is a cat.
Two (well, actually, three!) most important women in my life on the photo above.
What else I can add?
My wife gave birth to our child at quite an old age, both of us are not young, and it definitely is not a good thing - in your younger years parenting things cost you less energy and efforts, it is better not to wait too long to have children.
We tried to run it as closer to our baby as possible, used no baby carriage but baby slings (up to the age of four years), and the natural mammal milk nutrition.

Maybe it is a no-surprise and usual, well-spread thing in more traditional cultures and countries of Afrika and Far East, but in Europe it the time it wasnt widely circulated thing.... it really took some will to dare to go this way, while everybody else look at it like a very strange and bizarre act, considering you to be 'a poor gypsy in need', thinking you might dont have money enough to purchase a baby carriage. Now, happily, the state of things, the common state of mind have changed on this.
We always tried to raise our baby using deeds, not words, making our own behavior a vivid example of "how to do it right". Pretty sadley, I should note it didnt worked quite well... not 100%.
At different age we tried to lure our baby and to develop her skills with drawings, dancing, reading. The thing with reading worked well, but not the dancing... as for the drawing - well, lets say: 50-50%. We have got at least something ;)

Drawing. Everything is allowed!
Mother's little helper.
I dunno what else to talk about, probably thats enought for now?
There are questions, a lot of damn questions on education and doing homework, doing dressing, earning money, helping parents and more, more, more...
There is no great intresting story inside the post, but I could not but welcome @canadian-coconut to enjoy my happy family visuals. I hope, the stories will follow too!
