I made a conscious decision may years ago to parent in a different style than my parents. It can be hard to break the chain, but it is well worth it to parent in different style that suits you and your family.

  • Yep, my parents did the best they could but there are definitely things I don’t do.


  • Well done! I can only imagine the difficulty in doing something against what you have learnt growing up.

    • Following our own parenting style has actually been easy. :)


  • Well done . I wouldn’t copy my parents as they had no one to teach them as they came from a very poverty strickened country and there was nil or low education in those times and generation . Good you chose your own way of doing things and you wouldn’t do it if you think it wasn’t right .


  • Absolutely. I am exactly like you. I learned from all the mistakes my parents made with me.

    • Glad to hear that you have a different style too. Initially I was criticised, but now receive praise, not that I want or need it in anyway. We parent the way we want too, in a manner which nurtures and encourages and builds confidence.
