I know that in most areas of our family life I expect about the same as my parents...they are expected to work hard, keep their rooms clean, get good grades, tell the truth, and stuff. But I feel like I'm easier on my kids than my parent's were on me because we do EVERYTHING together and I try to make things fun and I always encourage and tell them I love them. Whereas my parents were very "cold" about everything. EVERYTHING was "because I say so". We were NEVER allowed to ask a question or have anything explained to us. If we ever wanted to know the "why" of something, we were told that we were completely out of line and in rebellion and it was complete dis-respect to authority to question anything.
What are your thoughts?
