I know I'm a day late, but thanks for stopping by my Monday Madness post! I agree with all of your points - good answers. =) "Inconsistency" seems to be a big answer across the board - it must be bothering quite a few people!

I totally agree with you and I'm trying to train my own DD to be a better parent. When we're out and another kid is screaming I say "somebody is done shopping!" LOL

And the inconsistancy is so true. It makes me sick when I see America's Funnies Videos and they the winner is a kid being bad on tape. How can you tell a kid that's wrong and then give them a prize of money for doing it?

I get lots of complements on my DD and my dog's behavior...and neither are treated like my parents treated me. DD knows that when she gets the look what she is doing is not approved behavior.

I so agree... my DD learned from the moment she could focus on my face, what was right and wrong in her behavior. She also learned that I meant what I said. She'd try most things once (screaming in a store, etc), but it didn't take twice.

Nothing makes me crazier than a mother telling her kids, "If you do that again, I'm going to (insert punishment here)." and the kid does it again, and the mom repeats herself.

I remember once being in the grocery store with a kid screaming at the top of his lungs, "I WANT FISHSTICKS!!". His mom had moved up several feet, looking at something. I stepped over to him and said, "If you were my son, you'd never eat fishsticks again."

He shut up. LOL...

Okay. all done.

I was raised by pretty strict parents. In fact, I still worry about defying them even though I'm now in my 40s. LOL!

I think that a lot of kids these days are not disciplined enough. Yes, we should be "friends" with our kids but they also need some structure in their lives.

Thank you for sharing.

My grammy "switched" us too. Boy! That hurt! And you're right...wrong size, redder thighs!(My grammy's saying.)

Hope you're having a great Monday.

My parents never had to actually spank me. The threat was enough to make me behave. *g*

2007-07-16T10:08:00.000-04:00

Oh my! You and I are so on the same wavelength. I would have given all the same answers, except about the switchig. I never had any of that. My grandma could get me with just a look too... that's where my mom learned it. For us growing up, the idea of disappointing our parents was motivation enough to keep us out of most trouble. Except me and my mouth... that always got me in trouble. Personally, I find that too many parents let their children make the rules or set the schedule -- even as toddlers or younger. And you just can't do that. If you wait for your child to tell you when he/she is tired before you put them to bed, neither of you will get enough sleep. I see my SIL do this time and time again. We use time out with The Boy, and it's almost always becuase he isn't listening -- his preschool teachers tell me the same thing -- and that is just disrespectful. If you teach a 2 year old it's OK to ignore your mom or dad, what are you going to do when they're a teenager?!?!? If you don't lay down the rules and set boundaries early in life you are going to be in big trouble down the road. It's just common sense to me, but so many parents are deadset on being friends with their kids or not making them mad that they can't see what impact their lack of discipline is having (or could have in the future). I could go on and on about this because I, of course, am a perfect mother and all should bow down to me.

By the way, today I did the meme you tagged me for last week...
