Old school, my mom tried "fun mom" with me and I lost a lot of respect for her.

I'm a mix. I pick my battles and discipline when needed. I don't want my daughter to grow up afraid of me but I do want her to respect me.

I'm very firm when it comes to discipline, but I like to do fun things like pick DD up from dance at 9 pm and then go sledding. :)

I wouldn't choose either label. My parenting style is not common and can't really be defined by those labels.

I'm more on the cool mom side. I'm more into openness and honesty and talking things out than harsh discipline. I hang out with my teenagers and their friends sometimes. I tend to share clothes with my daughter and we dress alike. I let her dye her hair whatever color she wants, she has 4 holes in each ear and she's getting her bellybutton pierced in a few weeks.

it works for me. She tells me literally everything and so.do her brothers. Her little sister is only 5 but I'm.hoping she Will too when she gets older.
