Do you ever just let your children "run wild" cause you are too tired to try and keep them "under control"?

I am talking about at home, NOT in public.

  • Absolutly -- then I put on tunnel-vision glasses so I can't see how messy the house has become!

  • NOT in public-sure, I send him down to the playroom that's set up so he can run and jump and ride his little cars and play basketball without hurting anything. He doesn't "run wild" per se, but he's an active preschooler who can't just go outside and run due to the massive amounts of snow on the ground for half the year.

    In public or in the main part of the house it is absolutely not allowed, no matter how tired I am.

  • It depends what he's doing. If it's something that isn't acceptable, then no but if he's just being a boy and doing something that can't harm him, then sure!

  • They are just running back and forth right now chasing each other all over the apartment.

  • Running wild as in being badly behaved and destructive? No. But running around playing boisterously and not hurting anyone or anything? Sure, all the time!

  • God all the time. She's in a safe area in the house. I put a movie in 4 her. I put out snacks & a drink. She has all her toys. I can just sit down & relax. I do this mostly when I need a break or I'm sick. Plus I can hear everything that goes on in here. I place the baby moniter ( mine has video/ sound) where I can see the whole room. Its very nice lol.
