I went to great lengths to make sure that my kids were disciplined plus understood the rules of the house, however i hated growing up around peers who were given no structure by their parents, and they were often some of the most poorly behaved students at school! You could see where the parents had gone wrong with their upbringing. I had a few friends that I would visit from time to time at their homes. They would order their parents around as if their parents were their servants, but and then the parents would respond in turn. It was one of the strangest things for me to track at the time because my parents were always strict by comparison. I remember thinking back then how weird I would handle things if I was given the opportunity to have my own kids; My husband plus I have worked easily tough to discipline our children fairly. I’m cheerful I do not have to buy a lock box for the central Heating, Ventilation plus A/C control equipment because our kids already know that they are not supposed to touch it without our explicit permission. They are told that if they are easily uncomfortable they can come plus ask us if we are willing to adjust it for them! Otherwise they are welcome to use fans in their rooms if they are feeling too warm. And if for some reason my husband wants the air conditioner turned down low because she’s feeling warm, I tell my kids to just put on warmer clothing. They’re not going to rule the house, however I’m not going to treat them like servants either, and children thrive when given fair plus mediocre discipline.
