Be a judgmental bitch on here, but seriously I have read some of the most selfish parenting posts in the last few day!
I mean If your child is under 16, you need to be up helping them get ready for school. A good breakfast ( not just the crappy pop tarts and sugary cereal they can make themselves) is what helps their brains function all day at school. Doing their hair and making sure they look nice keeps their confidence up. Double checking they have everything assures a successful day at school. and a kiss and hug before they leave is always the best. What is with people wanting kids to be adults> Weird IMO My kids are very independent, but I do not expect them to survive as adults when they are still kids. as far as teens go, I mean more of a get up and make sure they are dressed appropriate and up and out on time....
Also, if you smoke weed, good for you, but smoking weed or cigarettes in front of them is not cool. I mean get off your ass and go outside people. You are literally attributing to their early death. WHY?
Also, leaving children home alone at such young ages is simply dumb! They can be hurt, scared or even abducted. If they are not at least 10, you should be in jail.
I had to get this out, these are not just differences of parenting choices, these are actually neglectful and hurting your kids in one way or another! Bash all you want, and call my kids coddled or babied, but at least I know they are safe, healthy, and happy!
