I HATE seeing parents who say, "I have to sleep in the bed with them or else they cry all night" or "I have to make a different dinner for them because they won't eat what I fixed", etc.
Why do parents not realize that if they put their foot down and establish themselves as the dominant person in the household their children will listen to them and follow their rules?
Do they not realize that they are creating a downward spiral for the rest of their childrens lives? That they are helping to develop that "the world does it this way because that's what I WANT and I get everything I want" or "the world should be handed to me on a silver platter" type of attitude? That those are going to be the brats screaming their heads off in the store in a few years?
WHY do parents baby their kids and not teach any independance and obediance/discipline?
(Yes I went anon bc people are such whiners they'll bash me forever.)
