 Here's how other parents around the country measure their success as parents... 

• How keeping my children safe, healthy and ending the day with the hope that we and our kids are a bit wiser.  Robert, Manhattan, NY

• Knowing I am not perfect nor are my children; but by teaching them that, we strive to be the best people we can be.  —Jodi, Eastchester, NY

• The type of adults my children grow into. If they are responsible, educated, giving, and THEY feel successful (by their own definition off success), then I am a success.  —Joan, Methuen, MA

• How well my son has turned out as a parent. Watching him being loving and supportive to my grandchildren tells me I must have done something right.  —Ronni, Buffalo, NY

• How well my children handle their own children.  —Fred, Fort Walton Beach, FL

• By learning from my son every day. With every milestone, I learn something new about myself. I have learned that I can strive to be a better person at home and at work.  —Kelly, Bay Shore, NY

• How well-behaved, respectful, polite, hard-working, and happy my children are.  —Lisa, Blommington, MN
