Why is it that so many parents seem afraid to do their job? When did the kids take charge? Parents should have command of their children and the children should have respect for their parents. I see posts from so many parents asking questions that I know in their heart they know the answer to. Everyone knows that if a child is old enough to ask for a toy at the store then that same child is old enough to be potty trained. Why is it that parents now days act like it's perfectly ok for a 4 year old to still require diapers or pull-ups? Really? Or the ever so cute 5 year old with a pacifer. NOT! Parents need to get back to the old school way where the child knew its place and so did the parent. We are to be parents, not our child's friend. If my child gets mad at me, so be it. I'm not here for a popularity contest. I'm here to parent!
