I just don’t get it. I mean, I have pets and I would bet my bottom dollar that raising well-behaved pets and good child-rearing pretty much follow the same principles.
So what’s the big deal?
Let me share some parenting advice with you that will encourage your success at raising well-behaved dependents:
It starts with attitude. Theirs. You’ve got to keep it in check. My little angels would never give me a hard time. They are happy, well-adjusted, and respectful.
They know perfectly well that I am the boss.
I always maintain control and I am always the leader.
They are never spoiled.
I teach them the rules. Around here, we don’t have any slackers. They both carry their own weight.
I have taught them about boundaries so they understand what’s expected of them and behave accordingly.
My babies always exhibit good behavior; even while I’m away. They never break the rules. Not at MY house. I have GOOD kids.
But if I do catch them misbehaving, I stay strong; because they will resort to anything to elude punishment. Even pull out their biggest weapon . . . “the look”.
Of course my little darlings are well adjusted, have learned respect, and always take me very seriously.
And shoot, all it takes is a bit of work and a touch of balance.
So, what’s the big deal anyway?
