Brigitte Nielsen, Persuader/Adapter/Stabilizer Parent
The Persuader in me is a ton of fun! I can be very silly and clownish and get my kids or my husband to do pretty much anything. I really think it's important for kids to laugh a lot, and I make it easy for them because I love to be a clown! I'm happy, I'm an optimist and I'm colorful—and I think that sets a great example for my kids. I love to persuade them to give new things a chance. And when I act all silly and fun, I can get them onboard.
I'm an Adapter because I have to conform to different situations. I simply have to because each kid is different and I can't make all four boys happy every day with all of our busy lives and schedules. Sometimes everything seems to all run together and life is incredibly chaotic. It's great to have a busy, full life, but you have to be willing to deal with it and adapt. My kids are great at adapting to my lifestyle. Sometimes I have to go away to do a movie or a show and it makes all of us sad, but we have to deal. And the good thing is that when I get back, we adapt our lives to spending 24/7 together. Our lives are intense but wonderful.
Just in case you wanted to know, I am really not a Cooperator. I set the rules and I don't mind conflict! And I'm far from a Fixer. I would like to be one, but it's just not me. I'm a Stabilizer/Adapter/Fixer and I'm proud of it!
