DISCIPLINING Kids

I HAVE 4 KIDS THAT ARE NOW GROWN AND I USED THE TALK TO THEM STRATEGY AND HAD THEM FROM THE AGE OF TWO MAKING DECISIONS ON WHAT THEY WERE GOING TO DO. DO THIS BAD THING AND THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS, DON'T DO THIS OR BEHAVE THIS WAY AND THIS IS WHAT YOU WILL GET. IT TAUGHT THEM TO CHOOSE AND BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR CHOICES. ALL OF THEM ARE IN COLLEGE NOW AND DIDN'T CAUSE ANYWHERE NEAR THE HAVOC THAT I DID WHEN I WAS GROWING UP. BUT, HAVING SAID THAT, MY KIDS SEEMED TO WANT TO BE SPANKED ABOUT EVERY 6 MONTHS OR SO. I DON'T KNOW WHY BUT IT WAS JUST WHAT THEY NEEDED FOR A TUNE UP OR SOMETHING.

NOW I GO PLACES AND SEE KIDS THAT HAVE MOUTHS THAT SHOULD BE WASHED OUT WITH SOAP(J.K. THAT WAS DONE TO ME AND IT IS CRUEL AND DOESN'T TASTE GOOD EITHER, ESPECIALLY WHEN IT IS LAVA SOAP!) OR HAVE THEIR MOUTH'S SMACKED. THE PARENTS JUST IGNORE THEM. I'VE SEEN THE SAME WITH PARENTS THREATENING THEIR KIDS 5 OR 6 TIMES AND THE BEHAVIOR CONTINUES AND SO DO THE THREATS.

YES, I HAVE WANTED TO STOP THE CHILD AND TALK TO THEM HOW THEIR BEHAVIOR IS WRONG. BUT TO BE HONEST IF THE PARENT DOESN'T DO THEIR JOB AND PARENT THE CHILD, ANYTHING THAT I WOULD DO WOULD BE A WASTE OF MY TIME. IT STILL DOESN'T STOP ME FROM LOOKING AT THE MISBEHAVIN' CHILD WITH MY MOUTH AGAPE AND BE ASTONISHED AT WHAT THAT CHILD COULD GET AWAY WITH!
