Are you a softie?

Do you find it hard to say no to your kids?
Do you spoil them because you do not want your kids to be mad at you?

  • No I don't like to be to soft with the kids. I'm quite soft if the kids are behaving & knowing what they are doing. But for sure I can't be the one who would like to spoil the kids. If a kid is getting mad at me, let it be........

  • I am a softie but he very much hears the words no and I do not give him all he wants.. he is learning his limits, I guess my softie ways with him are at bedtime.. he gets very scared at night and wakes often and this is an area I can't seem to be strict on

  • I am a softie, but sure knew how to say no, and was never afraid to get them mad at me for the right reasons....

  • Depends on the situation, but I can be very strict and have high expectations and I can also be soft and let her get away with things. All of thius is situation dependent.
