Your kids are first and foremost your kids.
They are not your friends, they are not guests in your home, they are your children.
Most of what I've seen on this board is parents dealing with spoiled brats because they can't handle having a child, it has to be a smaller bit of company.
Compromising with your kids? That works in scripted TV. That works when you want a bratty child, have fun with them walking all over you.
Do any of you actually take your role as parent seriously? My mom was like you, when I was 15 she 'compromised' with me between smoking cigarettes and drinking alcohol. She also compromise with me about either going out and getting high, or buying me condoms and letting my bf come over.
Now, 20 years later I realize how I pushed her to it because I whined and cried for my way and she, like many of you, didn't have the backbone to parent.
Suck it up, you gave birth to them, now discipline them.

Idk....i try not to pay attention to th BS. The people i have spoken to on here seem like nice, loving parents, as they should be. Just remember that everyone had different parenting styles, just because they are different then yours doesn't make them wrong. I know some of us drink when our children are in bed, and there is nothing wrong with that. As for me, I choose to smoke, but i am not a bad parent because of it. I do NOT smoke around my kids. JMO
