Re: What has your favorite age to parent been?

I've only been a parent for 4.5 years but I have loved having a 4 year old. He's more independent and his imagination is endlessly entertaining. Plus he's still young enough to want cuddles and he thinks I'm awesome. I'm eating that up while I can, lol.

I am with you on 2 year olds, I always say 2 year olds are underrated, they are just so much fun!

and I totally agree with this. All of my kids were monsters at 3, now so much at 2 or 4 but definitely when they are/were three.

that said my oldest is only 7, so I have a lot of years of parenting ahead of me to change my opinion

Two is my favorite age. 4 sucks, I hear 5 gets better. And I love little babies but 2 is just the right mix of baby and big kid, plus their fits are still mostly controllable. Oh man, 2yo's are cute!

Re: What has your favorite age to parent been?

From about 6 months to 5 years old when they're continuously learning new things, sweet, gentle, not too sassy. My 7 year old is still in this phase for the most part, though he talks all. day. long. and has a sensory thing where he squeezes me - drives me bonkers! My oldest is 26, so I've parented through all the stages.

Re: What has your favorite age to parent been?

I've loved every stage (DD is in kindergarten), but I would say the "best" stage is probably around 1-2, when they are still little and "babies", but also learning to be more independant. DD is amazing and such a great personality though, I wouldn't trade it for anything.

Re: What has your favorite age to parent been?

I like ages 5-9 the best. I currently have an eleven year old, nine year old, and three year old. In early elementary I find that kids are really starting to find themselves, learn to be independent, etc. They also make the best helpers around the house LOL!
