My name is Wendell Jordan Sr and I live in New York City.  I am the parent of 3 kids ( 2 from my first marriage, 1 from my second marriage). The oldest is 29 and the youngest is 8.  I knew that being a parent was important but it became more clearer to me when my first marriage ended. It was at this time I realized how closely my kids were watching me. My kids like all kids look to their parents for those things that will help them be more secure in their lives.  Here is where I began a conscience effort to supply my kids with these needs.

The first thing I understood was that I am these kids’ role model.  I am the person they look to learn how to become useful citizens.

The second thing I understood was that I am their parent, not their friend. In order for me to be effective that distinction had to be made.

The third thing I understood was that I had to be the one who was in control.  At times this included me giving discipline.

The fourth and probably the most important thing was that I am a parent for life. The parent switch could not be turned off.

I created this blog to discuss these issues because I feel that parenting is a positive process where everyone ( parents and kids) can be winners.

I am not an expert , but I feel there needs to be a place where an open discussion on these issues can take place. This is why I created

    I really do like your blog. You seem like the type of person I was hoping to connect to with mine. My oldest child is younger than your youngest so you have my respect!

    I would suggest that you remove the default links from your blogroll, your blog is about you and your kids, not wordpress. I would welcome any feedback you have about my site should you ever get a chance to take a look.
