  • I think i am , even though my kids are only almost 5 and 2 1/2, i dont let them do anything that they could possibly get hurt doing. I hear other mothers saying " its how they learn you have to let them." But i just can't the answer is no. I feel so bad for them, but i don't think this will ever change, its more of a over-protectiveness than strictness, but almost one in the sam really. So yes, i think i am.

  • Depend on who you ask, lol. My dd thinks I hate her and my ds thinks I'm the nicest person in the world. We are pretty strict on some things and relaxed on others. We are doing homeschool through the summer (1-2 hours a day) which they think is unfair but they also get to watch tv and play outside and stuff. They are allowed to eat junk food occasionally. Neither one is allowed to date until they are 16, dd -no makeup until 16, and if they want a car they have to pay for it. Some find that strict, some don't.

  • but i disagree with the first response. i feel there is a BIG difference between being strict and being over-protective. my MIL is over-protective but not strict. And i am the exact oppostie. lol

  • I think I am, but my children are pretty good and they usually do as asked so I don't really have to get on them very often.
