at least its leather and not cotton or that one other material were its super hard to remove stains be thankful you got leather couches, my car doesn't have leather seats and my daughter always throws her bottle to the side (on the seats) when she's done with it, so now I have rotten milk stains in my back seats. you have an easier mess to clean with leather rather than the other fabric kind!!!
That's the result "new-age" parenting. My father didn't view me as an equal until... Well, I still don't think he does but as adults, we have mutual respect. I still don't swear in front of him and he still points out things I could be doing better, buy he's extremely proud of me and I have nothing but a profound level of respect for the man. All because he wasn't scared to give me what I had coming when I needed it.
Different ages require different parenting styles. For the western world, the "ideal" is usually considered to be Authoritarian when the child is young, Authoritative when the child is a teenager, and "hands-off" when the child is an adult. Being authoritative or passive with a four-year-old is a very bad idea because they're still in the preconventional stage of moral development. Which is a hedonistic time, by definition. Their actions are based solely on what feels good, and thats why it's so important that OP ensures that consequences ensue. It's the only way they'll understand.
Agreed. What the hell ever happened to kids actin' up, they get their ass whooped right there on the spot? Today's society is nothin' but a bunch of soft hearted people, and it irritates me. I go into restaurants to enjoy a nice meal, and someone's 3 yr old is yellin' and screamin' and makin' a mess raisin' all kind of hell and the parents don't do a damn thing. If I did that when I was 3, best believe I was goin' to the bathroom and gettin' an ass whoopin'
Woop his ass! That kind of behavior is unacceptable :l
You rack disciprine!
