All you have to do is take this fun quiz on what kind of parent are you, mark your replies and check your score.

Mostly As: You are a cool-as-cucumber parent. Everything is fine as long as it’s your kid doing it. You live in the moment and deal with everything later.
Mostly Bs: You are well balanced. Every parental responsibility is taken care of with great care. You weigh the pros and cons of everything.
Mostly Cs: Super conscientious, thinking-far-ahead is you as a parent. You think prevention is better than cure so you make difficult decisions that are best for your child in the long run.
