I always wanted to be a mom

—This is a guest post by Joy Clein. Joy’s blog is The Clein Times. I met her originally through a Facebook group for long-term traveling families.

The change in my parental settings

I had lots of practice parenting before Tigger moved in with me. Every child is different, and you have to adjust your parental settings to meet their individual needs, as well as to find what works and doesn’t work for them. For instance, you were practically killing my stepdaughter if you grounded her from the phone. But do that to my stepson, and he’d laugh at you. He couldn’t care less. For him you had to hit his electronics or...
