I have a 5 year old and I just feel Im to stict sometimes. My daughter is so well behaved and I do feel like ive done a good job at raising her to be so polite and well mannered. I guess it all comes from my childhood. When I was growing up I was allowed to do whatever I wanted and I had no respect for my mother because of it. I never had to follow any rules, She cleaned up after me, ect. and at times I felt she just didnt really care about me because I had to much freedom.
But I do think there might be a point that I need to let go and not be so hard on her. Shes a great little girl and shes so good so where is the point where I need to give her more freedom to be a kid.
She loves me and I know this, we have a great relationship. Im a single mother and Im all she has and shes all that I have.
Has anyone else felt this way or have any suggestions on what I can do to be a little better with her? I really do have all good intentions being this way with her but I do know I need to come at it in a different way.
Id love to hear feedback..please dont be so harsh though :(
