Do you think your kids are well behaved?

If you do, you are not alone - most parents think their kids are angels ....

  • I know my kid isn't an angel. She has her moments when she's cute and kind, and other moments when she is terrorizing everything. It's part of being a kid.

  • I know my kids can be hellions, heck, they aren't well-behaved all the time with me. But I also know that they do listen to me when it matters and listen to me when I am talking to them.

  • we get complimented all the time, so I'd say yes. earlier this year we took them to Benhihana's for the 1st time and they were 5 & 3 at the time. We were seated w/ a couple who were having their 1st wedding anniversary. they looked visibly horrified but to our surprise didn't ask to be moved. after the meal (which went perfectly) they pulled my DH aside and apologized for the rude things they were thinking, expecting small kids to be loud, annoying, making messes, non stop bathroom trips, etc.

  • NOPE. LOL. no way are they angels. they're 2 and 3. they fight,. they argue. they take toys away from each other. they hit each other, they yell at each other. in public, like at the grocery store they're pretty good, i get compliments. (in which i say " it's a disguise" lol) at home, they're rotten (ok ok sometimes they play nice. but how long that just never know). at school, they're between rotten and good. at church, it really depends on their mood lol.

  • Mine are well behaved for the most part, but far from 100% angels. In public, we rarely have an issue with them, unless the youngest is over-tired or something then it's just a matter of giving her something to be entertained by till we get to the vehicle (love you iPhone!! haha). I'm usually pretty good at diverting attention and avoiding tantrums though, so I think their behavior has a lot to do with how I react to things.

  • We get complimented all the time so I say yes and when the teachers all say they want to have the whole class be your child then Yes. Even my oldest 2 I got compliments on and they are all grown now. So I think Yes!

  • Not only did my kids behaved throughout their younger years, they made me proud in many ways, while other moms were yelling at their kids, I was praising mine!
