Parenting question, opinions..............
How involved are you with your young child (think middle school.....6-8th grade) in regards to ensuring they are home at a decent hour, they are fed appropriate food and there is sufficient time for home work and what ever else may need to be accomplished?
Do you take your child any and every where you may want to go prior to ensuring their school work is dealt with?
Does your child's life revolve around your own personal life?
Do you believe in any type of structure or a just 'take it as it comes' type of thinking?
What if a child is used to structure and also needs it, to do their best and to ensure they accomplish what they must do? Do the needs of the child trump the needs of the parent or vice verse?
