Totally agree! I told my kids, and my ex, (that's a story for another day! ) that my job as a parent is to make them grow into a responsible, well adjusted adult. That's not to say you won't end up being friends with your kids someday, but that isn't my first priority. Life is hard, and can be messy at times. You aren't always going to win, you aren't always going to be the best at something - deal with it! And the other reality is that kids will learn far more from how you handle things, then how you TELL them to handle things - so try & practice what you preach!I don't know why but this made me laugh. I love me some Timmy Ho's coffee any time of day!
Totally agree. Kids need leadership and structure, not the coolest mom/dad in school. These are the parents that think "little johnny" is capable of no wrong meanwhile he's bullying a poor kid and getting away with it.
Again, totally agree. This whole 'protect our young from anything negative' crap has got to end. Life is unfair, life is hard, and life requires input. "Participation Awards" are a joke. I call it "communism for kids". The thing that I can't understand is all the so called leaders and professionals in the teaching industry and in gov't are the ones coming up with this junk. How is this happening?!
