Is there anyone out there that believes in good ole traditional values anymore? Maybe I am the wrong one? I still believe that parents make the rules and children follow them and when they don't, there are consequnces. You refer to adults as Mr or Mrs, say yes mam and yes sir. Kids don't need cell phones, kids should play outside and not video games. There should be winners and losers and not "everyone gets a trophy"...Kids should have chores around the house and help out the family. Kids need to eat the food on their plate and if they don't they sit at the table until they finish.
I keep telling myself that I can't be the only mom out there that still believes that children need boundries, and disipline. To me this is a major way that we show love to our kids and raise them to be responsible, active adults that will contribute to the world.
