This was prompted by another thread. The question is, do your children have a say in what happens in your home? What they wear? What they eat? If they can participate in elective holidays such as Halloween and Valentines day? Essentially, do you listen to what your kids want and possibly change the rules in your home to accommodate what THEY may want?
For me, the rules in my house are basic for hygiene and food. Everything else we make up as we go. I may have a set of standards that I think we should adhere to, but I am flexible, and I want my children to feel like they have a voice. Do yours? Do you listen to what they want?
***Edited to add: or do you think this gives children to much power, and takes away authority from you as parents?
