How many people raise their kids on what the children are feeling and always make their decisions based on that instead of what the adult feels is right?
I'm doubting that many do, so why is that the go to place for some SM's when mom doesn't allow her kid to call the shots where SM is concerned? Does mom really have to allow SM do to certain things because a 5/10/15 year old fffeeeeeelllsss that is what should be allowed when the mother has her own ideas of what should be going on?
Is a parent not allowed to ever put their feelings ahead of their kids because that might scar the kids for life, especially if it means that SM's ego might be brusied a little bit?
Change it up... if the kid doesn't want SM doing something but mom feels it is in the kids best interest for SM to do it, does the kid still get to call the shots or is it in that instance that the kid doesn't know what is best for them, because it involves SM being involved and of course mom knows what is best?
