Cool, Strict, Laid back,Proper

Whatever fits your personality and lifestyle defined in your own way.

I consider myself the cool mom. My son is generally a good kid, smart and compassionate and I let him say things he knows not to say out of the house! But I do find I have to remind him to do stuff, nagging.

All of the above.    It depends on the circumstances at the time.  

I am proper when it comes to manners and etiquette.   My kids were taught proper social skills, and to send Thank You notes, to open doors for ladies and to respect and help the elderly.

I am strict when it comes to responsibilities, accountability, respect and time management.

I am laid back when it comes to curfews, cursing, the cleanliness of their bedrooms,  I pick my battles.

I am cool when they deem me as so.... usually when we are playing Rock Band, enjoying a concert or on vacation, lol.

A little strict about responsibilities at school, at home, at their Boy Scouts, church. 

A little cool about their choices in academic activities, as learning to play the viola instead of the guitar, of to play soccer instead of tennis...

I think a good mom is a combination of all those things.  The trick is knowing when to be which type
