telling our children no will assist them in life to come, and they will be able to tell themselves no when necessary (unless it’s brownies for breakfast).
If parents refuse to set a discipline routine for their kids, including consequences when boundaries are broken then you might be one of “those” families that have a hard time securing babysitters,
These will be some of the hardest parenting years of your life. You will go back to when they were infants and you didn’t sleep much. You will be worried far more than you did when they were safe at home with you,
I hate needing to set boundaries for the children I babysit because I know that I will have to follow through with a disciplinary action that I said I would…BUT on the other hand if I don’t then there is nothing but mayhem, and no one around is enjoying themselves.
