    Haha haha if I wake up on the left side of the bed i don’t greet lol. I also wonder when i see little kids acting so badly behaved and the parents claim that the child is just naturally stubborn, really? It’s because you as a parent allowed the child to cultivate that habit. Every child can be molded and taught.
    Yes some children can be very mischievous but even then there should always be a firm limit.

    Well I believe you can be a parent as well as a friend because being a friend allows you to get to know your child, children pretend a lot in the presence of their parents and this is because of the absence of friendship.
    That’s why we often see children who were raised seemingly perfectly become totally different beings outside or once independent.
    I feel it is very important when raising a child to explain why we do what we do and say what we say, if your tell your child not to do a certain thing, you need to sit them down and let them know why. If you discipline your child, it is important to call them aside later and discuss with them why you did and why they’re wrong.
    If you make mistakes as a parent or do something you shouldn’t have, you should be humble enough to apologize to them.
    Creating a level of friendship with children is very important because that is the only way to get honesty from them otherwise they will simply obey out of fear and once the parent is removed from the equation, so are the shackles that kept them well behaved.

      I agree with you oh…..but sometimes we parents take the level of friendship too far and that is where we have a problem. where do we draw the boundaries as friends and as parents. I personally believe that in a bid to imitate the western way of parenting, we copy the good the bad and the ugly.
