    Not at all. My mother did her own reckoning. She may have said yes more than no, but that may have been because of the questions I asked her. She didn't like to say yes to everything, so there could have been some questions that I figured were going to be no anyhow and I really didn't care about. Useful training when dealing with bad bosses.

    • having after school activities and/or homework helps keeps kids out of trouble

      Comment


      • Hello, I am a mother of two children, and I know exactly what happens to the house and our lives as our children grow older and older. From the start, they are like okay I mean they are just babies how bad can they be when they grow older and break everything they get in their hands. Then there is a time they get to school and the real fun part start here they just do their homework on the walls instead if the notebooks provided. In the next few years they get a bit elder like 12-13 years it’s time they get more sensitive in their life and dangerous at the same time managing them is the hardest thing as you can't beat them like you used to be but then you will get used to it. My children are 15-18 years old, and they make plenty of mess right now but my husband take charge of it, and all is good.

              • I wasn't really yelled at or hit as a child. However, I was disciplined and my mother did hit me once on the **** when I had been very naughty! No: I was hit once or twice when I got older, but I was not damaged by it. In fact, I can understand why. Still, I'd never hit any children of mine. If they were naughty, I'd make them sit on their own in their room for two hours. They'd also lose their privileges if they had been very naughty. I don't think violence is the answer.

                  BTW, have you ever tried raw cacao? It's what chocolate is made from. I've had the whole beans and the powder, but my favorite is the nibs.
