    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.
