     I think it's best to be a mix of both.

     neither, there should be a healthy balance.

    Every time I hear Erika's opinions on these topics I 100% disagree w/ I TOTALLY disagree w/her thoughts on kids questioning authority. It's not a penalty of being the buddy. EVERY child should be taught to question authority. RESPECTFULLY, but questioning should always  be encouraged. It helps them to be independent, decisive, confident, a leader,  it helps build problem solving skills, it helps them to learn respect, consequences....there really is no down fall to teaching your kids to respectfully question authority when they believe something is unjust.

    This! It doesn't have to be one or the other. Depends on the situation and on the kid

    Quoting Kmakksmom:

    I think a good mix of both is great.

    I am so lucky to have my child in a church school where we are all old school.
