I can't believe how many mothers think they are doing it right when they are doing it wrong
I know quite a few women who think they are great mothers when they are not. A lot of them are on Facebook (acquaintances not friends) and I see them post a lot about things their kids do that show that they are not a great mother.
If you are afraid to take your kids to the grocery store, movies, mall, bowling, restaurants or anywhere else because you are afraid of how they will behave then you are doing it wrong. They are your children, you take them these places and you tell them to behave or they will get ______ consequence, make it something you know will devastate them. Then if they do not behave you follow through. After doing that a couple times they will understand.
If your children are destroying your home, car and things then you are doing it wrong. The first time your child touches something or destroys something that is not theirs you give them a consequence. Make it something you know will devastate them. After doing it a couple times they will understand that they are not to destroy things.
I could go on and on and on. I won't because I can hear my wonderful, well behaved (compared to most other children) kids waking up and I would like to make them a healthy, filling breakfast before we start our busy day of going out and about having fun because my children can behave in any situation I put them in.
