Hello Moms! My name is Morgan and I am the proud mom of a 5 year old and 1 year old. I joined the site just to have a place to go when I'm feeling the pressure and stress of being a stay at home mom and to find new friends go to friends on parenting advice. I recently had a stressful conversation with my father who stated that I am too hard on my five year old and that I need to losen up on the structred time I set up for him. He said that my he acts like a robot sometimes and is not free to express himself or find his own intrests. I agree that I do lay out a lot of structured time for my son and he is very well disaplined, but at the same time he is well rewarded for his effort. My intention is to bring him up with a strong foundation, so that when the time comes, I can trust that he will make good decisions for his life. It was just a hurtful conversation with my dad and it bothers me that he feels this way about my parenting. Just wanted to know if anyone else have these concerns with thier family or friends?
