Wouldn’t it be nice if all our moments with our kids were easy, happy and friendly… if we never had to be policemen and drill sergeants? I struggle with the consistently, as a parent. Too much discipline, and I feel like a ‘mean mummy’. Too much fun and I start to lose control… and the kids start becoming horrible little bad-mannered, disrespectful trolls with the magic power of being able to turn me instantly into a screaming banshee.
It’s a hard balance and some days I succeed better than others at figuring out how to be the cool, fun mum – but with boundaries.
Today, I’m over at Bonbon Break, telling a little story that talks about this dilemma. Just click on the Picture to pop over and have a read and please share your thoughts. Happy parenting!
