I don't respond to my kids every whine, cry or whim.
I teach my children about God, but we do not attend church regularly.
I do often allow my kids to have things like koolaid, spaghetti o's, soda & even (gasp!) candy.
I don't feel the least bit guilty leaving them to go to work, school, or even out for a night with my hubby.
My kids don't have playdates everyday, yes I force them to find ways to entertain themselves.
I restrict the kids to one activity per season. I refuse to drive myself & them crazy by over scheduling activities.
I have been known to tell them they don't have to complete a homework assignment that I believe to be a ridiculous waste of time.
I don't condone fighting, but if someone hit my child & they hit back in self defense they would not be punished.
I let my kids watch tv, play video games & play on the computer. I don't stand over their shoulder while they do, but do random checks on what they're watching. They know the rules.
I don't make them eat all their veggies, in fact some days they have no veggies.
I ignore tantrums. I'm sorry if you're unlucky enough to be around during one. In the case of a tantrum in a restaurant however my kids are removed from the building until they are finished.
I don't believe in spoling my kids, but I don't feel that they should be subjected to harassment or teasing just to "teach them" something. Kids are cruel. If I can find a way to afford the popular shoes, I'll buy them.
Come on all, I know we all have something! Anyone else a horrible mom? lol
