Decision-Making Thoughts

Do not let your children become your battleground. If you and your spouse are good parents, everything can be worked out.

Parents being the best that they can be 

Speaking to one another cordially

Parents setting aside their differences they feel 

To show their child what is truly real

Parents’ being what is necessary to be

The ‘best interest’ is

That the child grows up to be the best that they can be 

Will that be to handle things in a way of hurt or harmony 

The bottom line is

We should want them to grow up to be great

Don’t let your hurtful ways decide their fate


So when it comes to what is in the best interest of the child

Be the parent that shows them you can make it thru the trials 

Being the father or the mother

That puts the needs of the child’s before any other
