Come and join Jane and I as we discuss some parenting stuff around how much do we do for our kids? How much should we do for them? What is the importance of allowing them to experience the consequences of the decisions they make? If they want to act like adults and be treated like adults then they need to understand that adults are responsible for their decisions as well. Our job is to help them learn life lessons by discussing the pros/cons of an issue they are dealing with. Then we step aside to allow them to make their choices. If they turn out to be mistakes we help them learn something of value from those mistakes instead of blaming them and calling them names or telling them how disappointed we are in their behaviour. Punishing and consequences are not the same thing either. .
