I see posts here all the time asking how to get kids to eat, sleep in their beds, stop talking back. It really makes me head hurt, because I always want to say "they're kids, MAKE THEM!" I usually don't bother though. I mean, I understand that some kids are particularly high strung and stubborn, but even they can be helped by parents who set boundaries and assert dominance. Isn't that what parents are for? My question is, am I the only mom on this site who doesn't sweat it when my child "refuses" to mind? Am I the only one who insists on being the winner in a small child's battle of wills?Answer Question

I understand SOME people... like there are times where my child refuses to eat.. but other things.. like talking back, hitting, spitting.. I don't see how ANY parent doesn't have control over that...
