So after reading a few questions here, my own popped into my head.
When did we stop disciplining our children. Why did we.
Is it because we were told that we needed to cater to them, to make them feel loved, needed and appreciated. Or was it when we were told to foster growth, self esteem and approval with friends.
I truly shudder when I think about the future job holders of the world. Those kids who expect good grades for doing nothing(or else mommy and daddy trounce up to the school and demand that junior be passed, because his head hurts, or his soccer practice is too long to do homework, or that he needs to hang out with his friends). Kids that expect to get to the top by doing nothing. The real world is not like that.
So, do you let your kids get away with murder to protect their self esteem.

Thank You. I was thinking the same thing today. When and Why do people decide that you might as well not discipline your kids.Â I've seen so many answers lately that say stuff like .. well kids are gonna do what they want, when they want so .. just talk to them about it how to do it safe... so they don't get hurt doing it.
And the worst image popped into my head..Â Â If they are willing to let their 13 yr old little girl go out alone to have sex and give her a condom to do it.. what would they do if the child wanted to kill someone?Â Give her rubber gloves so she don't get caught?
BLAH to bad parenting.Â Â Discipline your children people - they are your future.. and mine
