Last night i got into talking with my other half. We started with the basic and then went to what the kids where saying and talking about while i was painting my daughters nails and trying to explain to my son why he cant have his nails painted and My daughter points out that her father my ex paints his and he is a guy.
Then i get on the topic with out the kids about the conterversey about the boys scout and the sexual issue that they need to vote on. And then some how we ended on the news and how things where for us when we where growing up and how we felt that our parents would send us out and almost lock the door so that we couldnt gt back in.
Now that i am raiseing my kids. I dont want to be that helcopter parent or that parent that has to contrrol everything little thing that my kids do. I want to my kids to go n play and stay outside until the street lights come on. Do we even have Street Lights any more? Sadly I live on a busy road at the moment. Working on moving to a better area.
But cabin fever has gotten to us all by the end of the day. I want my kids to be able to be kids and i want to be able to carry that free spirtit parenting that my parents did. Or at least think that they did. How about you mom's? Do you struggle with letting your kids out to play all day? Do you find your self after the kids go to bed deep in a touchy subject that most people cant handle to talk about? But can openly with your spouse?
