I am loving, living, and laughing with my husband and seven children aged eight and under... life is always crazy at Woody Baby Farm!

Did you always want a big family? If not, when did you change your mind?

What's a common misconception about big families?

How many children do you have? What's the age difference between the oldest and youngest?

What's a great present for a tween?

Brooke Brownell

The best present you can give a tween, boy or girl, is quality time. Actually sitting with them, listening to them, asking them questions is so unusual in their lives that this will make a great impact. Take them out for ice cream, or even better, treat them like a grownup and take them for coffee! Listen, listen, affirm and encourage.

What should every child know by the time he or she starts first grade?

Brooke Brownell

By the time a child starts first grade, every child should know that she is loved. He should know that he belongs to a family or a group and know that he is valuable and needed. She should know how to work diligently and be learning how to be a team player. He should know that even though the people he counts on mess up, they will ask for forgiveness, make amends, and always be loyal. She should know that work is good and has its rewards. He should know who to turn to for help.

Do you think the government should pay stay-at-home moms for their work of raising children and managing a household?

Brooke Brownell

Absolutely not. I am for tax reductions for homeschoolers since they are not incurring costs for the school system, but stay at home moms are blessed to do what they get to without government interference and possible control.
