So the struggle between your parenting style and another person’s parenting style is an on going battle. I am a mum of 3 but the 3rd generation in 4 generation family of girls (still living). My grandmother believes I’m not harsh enough with my girls and that they should fear me. My mother believes i’m too tough on my girls and that i should give them what they want. I think I’m a good parent when i think about it. I don’t really like either of their styles. I believe that everyone has their own style of parenting that should be meet with support and positivity. Advice is only advice when its asked for. Otherwise its just criticism.

  • I feared my mother, and lets just say I have nothing to do with her… Too easy on them, giving everything they want, risks being spoilt brats.


  • Oh dear, If a child fears the parents isn’t that called abuse ? . Yes kids should be disciplined but in a obstructive way so that they understand what’s right and wrong . You can be tough , but instilling fear is not right to me no matter what anyone says .


  • great to read this story


  • Your family; your life; your way! :)


  • Each to their own, you’ve nailed it on the head.


  • If your girls are happy you keep doing what you are doing I believe to let kids be kids at same time they need rules and boundries


  • you get that from the older parents and I am an older parent but I give my advice but than it is up to my children to do with it as they want after all they are the ones that have to live with the child/children daily and can’t give them back. We have at Nanny’s house when they stay it’s Nanny’s way as we have one for 3 day on a fortnightly basis As long as they are happy and thriving than it is the right way
