  • i can be both actually. my kids are at this stage where my son thinks he doesnt have to listen to anybody and he can do whatever he wants. and my daughter is still in the tantrum stage. i try to be more laid back with them until they really get me to the point where i cant take it anymore.

  • I am an extremely laid back mom of 5. My daughter, 9, told someone the other day that I never yelled. They thought she was kidding, but I realized it's true, I can't remember a time that I have yelled. Our house has clear rules and corresponding disciplinary actions, but the kids know what they are and if they break a rule they have to pay the price - no reason to argue about it.

  • We are laid back, tend to encourage kids to be their best. Talk talk talk to them. All three are in wonderful colleges and are great young adults.
