Every parent is eventually going to ask the question; how do I make my child believe the same things I believe. The simple answer is, you really can't. Eventually, your child is going to grow up and enter the adult world. They are going to question every teaching everything they've ever been taught. An effective parent is a parent who doesn't teach their children what they should believe; they teach them to believe, through example, what they, themselves believe. They will never force their beliefs on their children. By doing this, they are giving their children a much more honest look at what their parents believe, when the time comes that they can make the beliefs their own, or not. That's the most effective way that parents will pass their beliefs on to their children.

Dan Pearce

Blogger & Single Dad

Dan Pearce is the divorced father of four year old Noah, who came to him through adoption. Dan is also the author of The Real Dad Rules and Single Dad Laughing: The Complete Second Year, and his blog, Single Dad Laughing. When he started Single Dad Laughing in the summer of 2010, his then-wife had left his life almost as quickly as she’d come into it, and he was feeling about as valuable as a dollar-store sweater (and unraveling just as quickly). He started the blog because writing has always had the power to heal him in his darkest of moments. His goal is to spread worthwhile ways of looking at things. Before becoming a writer, Dan worked in retail, in the corporate world, and as an animal artist.
