If you're a parent and you find yourself reading this tedious post, you are now required to leave feedback. It's not often that I make a mandatory reply, if I have ever, but right now, I seek your opinions.
I've often thought that parenting is different based on the parents doing the parenting, the personalities of the children, how the parents themselves were raised, and of course any surrounding matter that makes up the "material" part of their life.
I've always thought that parenting for one won't be the same for another.
Which should be fine.
As long as the family isn't being abusive or neglectful in any way, parenting is different in each household.
Which is why I'm curious to know your opinion on something I will address shortly.
You may be beyond this stage of parenting, or in it manner deep and struggling with your own, "I'm just not sure what to do," but how should a parent parent, in your opinion?
Hold on a second, I have to finish that last part.
How do or did you parent your children when they were in a stage of 'hearing' you but not listening to you and following direction?
How do or did you parent your children when it had to do with manners at the dinner table as well as the treat of eating out?
Do you feel it's important to have sitdown dinners with your young ones? Obviously the older they get, it becomes far more difficult to have sit down dinners. With saying that, do you believe that by not having a family sit down dinner, or if that isn't possible, a daily "town council sit down chat" will hurt your family?
Will make your children respect you less?
Will make your children not hear you?
Will make you feel invisible?
Will will will..
I will parent the way I see fit. Period.
But I'm curious, how would you parent your children if they were currently having difficulties with using their ears as well as using their manners?
Sit up straight, and type your comment away. Just please be sure to keep your elbows off the laptop please.
