I have always encouraged my children to be independent and stubborn.
In stubbornness, comes determination.
In independence, comes wisdom.
With that said, with five kids, comes a worried mom.

It's refreshing to see that some other parents instilling values of independence and thinking over blind obedience and following. In our school system and general area, obedience is king. I think it spills over from the overboard religiosity here.

Five sounds like a lot to me. I can barely handle two. With five independent, strong willed kids, you will no doubt be herding cats. But that independence will serve them well in the end, and will ultimately lead to fewer worries. Sounds like you're doing a great job. 🙂

One grown, moved out two years ago. Two are teenagers, shared parenting time.
And the boys are preteens.
Nearly done now. Just gotta survive these next few years lol
