    So, I'm not a parent yet,

    but I am a lot more disciplining with children than my parents were with me. I know what I did to exploit my parents so I can see it coming from younger kids. I just wish my parents had been stricter with me sometimes. Taught me some discipline, etc. Would have been nice.

    As a stepmother who married into a stricter

    family, I've tried very hard to provide consistency for my stepdaughter. She's 11 now. Other strict parents have suggested ways that I could tighten certain rules and behaviors, but I wonder if she might be too old to make things stricter than she's been used to. Does anyone...
