Ok... this is a loaded question. lol What is your parenting style?
My kids really have no bedtime... I'm very relaxed as long as they are quiet if I'm going to bed....
I let them get crazy dirty and I'm pretty relaxed all the way around with the things they do.
My youngest has had no vaccines and we plan on keeping it that way.
Umm... and I don't always force my kids to do things they don't want to do. Example:summer camp has not turned out that great for them...its more like daycare than the kind of camp I thought it would be... it wasn't cheap and they knew what activities there would be before we signed up... so I am making them go still but I have let them take days home too. Example.. my 7yr old was pretty pouty this morning and I drove him back home. A lot of parents critisize for this... but I figure you know if I signed up for something I really didn't want to do I'd prob quit too. LOL
I talk about pretty much everything in front of them. I don't shelter them AT ALL!!
My younger 2 still wind up in the bed with me most of the time....
I have recently become anti spanking. (this is just for me, your view is your view, I am not judging-just to make clear LOL)I've never been a big spanker but there were the occasional times when I saw it as an attention getter when I had exhausted all other means.. but after much discussion with other moms (friends) and hearing different views... I think it really is about my anger not so much what they are doing when it has gotten to a spanking point... and its so easy for something to go terribly wrong when using that method...pop on the butt, lose footing, hit head, dead... so I do a lot of talking. LOLOL
I'm sure I'll think of more later but I think this is def a good conversation starter
P.S. NO JUDGEMENT towards each other please, to each his own, everyone has their ways, I just love to hear others views on things!!! I'm big into learning, I think we can always learn something from each other.
