    • heart Im strick. But Im fair. I never go back on my rewards and I never change my punishments. If your grounded your grounded. My hubby and I sit down with both kids my oldest still lives at home till after xmas both are aware of expectations rules ect thats more for our 14 year old daughter. She knows how we feel but we are always open for imput from her and in somethings weve let her pick rewards and accountability. She is an amazing child so when she asks for something to bend before hand we might.
      Its rules with love in our house and like we tell her our job is to get her ready for life our joy is to love her.heart

    • I guess my parenting style has always been “muddle through the best I can”

      I suppose my kids would tell you I’m the unreasonable, strict, drill sergeant type parent.

    • I was a bit strict.  I raised my niece who was older than my son and she was a whole lot different from my son so I was not that hard on her yet I was still firm.  My son on the other hand tried you to the last bone like most boys I assume so with him I was really strict and I have not regretted it as both are productive adults.

    • I’m old school I believe in implementing values and morals, I am one who will spank when needed and I also believe that chilren should stay in their place. Speak when spoken to and not be rude and not address elders as Mr. or Mrs. Miss. Do not call me by my first name of a nick name. I just belive that children today has no clue what it is to be repectful. Its not being taught these days in many households.

    • When my daughter was little, I was laid back and firm.  Fortunately, she was a good girl (and still is) and I didn’t have to disipline her much.

      Neicy you‘re right, about some families not teaching their children respect.  In my school work, we have to teach the kids everyday to be respectful.  When kids call me “hey,” they get a lecture from me about manners. estatic

    • When my daughter was little I think I may have been a little too hard at times and too soft. I believe children have a voice and I have allowed her to express herself but at the same time enforcing respect.Even today she can get a bit out of hand and the sternness in my voice comes out and raise just a bit so she knows I am not happy and she needs to calm herself down. She is all in all a really good young lady married and making a life for herself. So God really got me through especially considering she’s really my niece my sister passed when she was 5. So we had some adjusting to do but we made it.

    • Kerri that was so beautiful of you helping to raise your niece as y our daughter.  I helped to raise my niece as well and looking at her life now it makes me feel proud.
      I strongly agree with Denise.  God bless the teachers at a time like this.

    • I would say I am loving, laidback but with boundaries and expectations. I have always been one for giving them the responsibility of making the right decision, but they also know what my values are and luckily to the most part theirs have fitted with mine.
      I have had an honest open relationship with all my children and brought them up for 11 years as a single parent so the majority of the parenting has come from me.
      All have attended well at school, my daughter with 100% attendance, middle child at uni and eldest in a full time managerial position, all have completed homework before going out with friends and I’ve always had positive feedback from others which makes me feel proud that they are my children!
      They have always had friends around the house and its been a place for them to relax, I do fall down with household chores though! Yes they have to tidy their bedrooms, nip to the shop for groceries, maybe make me a brew and pick their plates up when finished but apart from that i have always done the rest. My eldest can cook though and now washes and irons his own clothes. He chose to do this himself to bcome more independent and I didn’t say no.
      We all have our own style and i’ve just gone for one that works for this family.Hey and we have not always agreed, just for the most partestaticheartheartheartI’m a qualified youth worker so I suppose that has helped xxheartheart
