    We actually raised two daughters. Both are strong, successful married women who fortunately didn't do thing wrong things their mother and I did..

    Precisely why you should never pro-create, adopt, or foster. Not ever.

    Said it before. I'll say it again.

    Please don't.

    I look at it this way.... Are we Better or Worse off TODAY than we were prior to the Women's Sufferage Movement gaining traction in the early part of the 20th Century? Technologically we are immensely superior, but socially and societally I would suggest that we are incalculably inferior to the society that existed prior to the Women's Sufferage and then Femistm movements of hte 20th Century.
    I think modern society is a big improvement over the society of the early 1900's. There's not much point in debating it though because it's been covered repeatedly, and neither of us is going to change our mind.

    Raise them just like a son, except they should also be taught how to overcome the waning influence that sexists still have over the workforce.

I have never seen a child in that much perpetual crisis. So, we will work on that.

    In terms of what they want to be, who they want to be, and all that, I will let them decide and work on building their strengths and helping fill in the gaps where their weaknesses are.
    I wouldn't read too much into how a 2 year old seems. As she grows older, her independent little self will emerge.

    Just have her read your posts regarding love, child rearing, and such.

    Have these exact same conversations with her, and answer to her like you answer to us.

    If that doesn't change her mind, you should be very afraid that you might be mixed up with a ...............

    Probably true. I am in a new environment as well. Dana has a much different parenting style than the ex wife did which may play a role.

    Right now I am still trying to adjust how I go about things to work with what the little girl's emotional style and level is.

    Like "we don't refill the juice until its actually empty" LOL

    We've had all the same conversations. While she isn't 100% in agreement with me on how to raise a child, we're at probably 92-93% agreement. Then again you need to remember that she's Puerto Rican, has never held a real job, and didn't graduate high school. Her only real marketable talents are in homemaking. Nothing else.
