    You should be the parent to your child, not their friend. You can get along with your child, but you are still the parent

    i feel like the people here who will have the most successful kids are christian and nguyen. like the fact that christian is raising her daughter to be independent & responsible while still prioritizing happiness AND safety,,, that’s such a good example of a quality parent. plus nguyen is teaching his kid to be a hardworking and focused individual, while still making sure they’re mentally healthy and happy. honestly so inspiring.

    For the spanking thing my dad spanked me with a leather belt and I never got to say my emotions. I now flinch every time I get yelled at or when someone raises their hand. I also repress everything and it gives me enormous amounts of stress.

    Kids NEED structure. They also NEED fun. Both are equally important. It's simple, extremes of either side are detrimental to a kid's development.

    With all due respect in my opinion a strict parent is much better becuase they worry about their Childs safety. Its not okay to let ur 9 year old go to the subway in the middle of New York. Also you should be pushing ur children to take advanced class so that they can be more successful in the future thats what my parents did and I'm now in 9th grade and taking classes that are 2 years ahead, thats called success. But I do believe that you should have a great relationship with ur parents as well, and feel free to talk to them. Ps. I love all my classes.

    My parents let me have freedom so I could make mistakes wich made me learn. But they were very strict when it came to social behaviour, etequite and health/food. They let me explore my idea's and creativity (supporting me whith my writing and drawing) but they also taught me to be kind and help people. I think its the perfect balance between free range and strict. But every parents have their difficoulty in parenting. Everyone has weak spots (for them it was talking and handling emotions) and I dont think you should thrive to be good parent you shouls just be concearned with brining up a good healthy human.

    I don't have kids but I've grown up with strict parents and I've also been that person eating out and children are screaming and running about. However, I think there needs to be a balance... parents that let their kids run about in public are rude as it's not fair on others in that environment but I don't think the kids should be shouted at just talked to like normal humans. Having had strick parents made me realise when I do have kids I want a respectful relationship where they can learn and grown and not feel like due to our relationship they can't share with me ... I'd want my kids to be honest with me. Looking back on my childhood I appreciate how I was brought up and understand why my parents were strict and now I see them as my friends and were somewhat more open because I'm an adult but I do think having strict parents hinders certain choices you make and causes you to be more of a worrier.

    I am 12 and I want to be a parent when I grow up. My dad had got spankings a lot growing up, and he thought it worked for him. In my opinion it didn't he brought that over to me and my siblings. In my opinion whooping and hitting your kid makes them scared of you. It also If you like hearing your own kid scream and cry while you whoop them, u should be a shame. I feel like I can be a better parent than both of my parents. My mom would compare us to each other and criticize others(not us). They don't give privacy. They will tell us we can't watch that or listen to that because of the cursing. Also they will be watching something and all I could hear is cursing! also my dad does have anger issues he just yells a lot 15:52.....I learned everything from Super Nanny XD

    spanking is fine until the child is able to remember it. Usually when they start 1st grade that's when it should be completely done and it should never happen again. This is coming from a 15 year old.

    No one should EVER spank their children. The child could grow up with trauma. There is no 'there's a difference between abuse and spanking' there isn't, if you want a child to learn something you don't teach them with violence. Do you go to your job and if you do something wrong someone punches you or slaps you? Exactly. Just because something sounds easier or ''effective'' it doesn't mean it's right.

    its so funny since switzerland is so much safer than the us so many things that those ppl call free range parenting are totally normal things here. for example we walk to kindergarten at 4 years old by themselves. (with me and my friends that was around 1.5 kilometer) so i think 1 or something like that. so its really interesting to see how everything is so different aroubd the globe

    Honestly strict parenting style was always the base for most families, so why can't we change that to see how more fredoom works? Literally strict parents only creates fear and insecure childs, cause they are never trust to do anything, you know your parents don't would allow you to go a party or sm so you end up lying and doing it anyways cause is the only way you can have a break of them

  • You got a dollar???

    I am 100% thankful for my parents for spanking me. People make it out as an abusive punishment, but it’s not. My mother would spank me with whatever was around at the time. (Home Depot paint stirrers, coat hanged, and fly swatters) afterwards she would explain to me on why she spanked me. (My mother was black and My brothers and I are bi racial) Thinking back I realized how my actions affected others. This lead me to be mature for my age. I understood that the world doesn’t revolved around me. You don’t even remember the pain of the spanking, you remember the actions that caused it. Tbh kids these days are rude and disrespectful. A lot of kids would see a situation and not think about how it affects them and others. My mom was a strict parent, and I’m thankful for that. She respected me and I respected her. She didn’t go through my phone. She trusts me to go out (depends on the environment) She makes arguments like, “ you don’t pay bills”. And she is right I don’t. I don’t feel her burden. I should not have the right to tell her how I think I should be raised or how things should be done. That doesn’t mean I can’t express my thoughts. My mom is my mom first. She treats me like an adult. My mom stop spanking me when I acted like I can make decisions for myself. Kids don’t fully understand the world, so why should they make choices that could impact others around them. I trusts my mother so much that I tell her EVERYTHING. I don’t leave out the bad or the good. I tell her the full truth. She gives me her thoughts. Yes if what I did resulted in a punishment then that’s what I get for doing it in the first place. I learn from my mistakes. Free range parenting seems like they don’t acknowledge the decisions their kids make and how it affects others. Kids needs to be guided through life. Parents are there to make pit stops and add checkpoints. Experience is the best teacher, spanking a child is showing them how the decision they made can be impactful. There is a difference between abusive and discipline. An amazing parent knows the difference.

  • Joanna M Pay
    Joanna M Pay Day ago

    I think my problem with strict parenting is when it becomes strict on a negligent way - in a human way. So it's necessary to still be friends with your child. I was raised very strict for me, for who i am and who my mum is, we're very different kind of women. As she is conservative asian, and i'm say the only one in my family interested in the arts. So i rebelled a lot as a teenager, and a part from the values she gave me, I have a lot of developmental issues with social strains for aspects that just weren't supported. Like group functions etc, because of what was prioritised as necessary in the household. No extra curricular clubs etc, because it was more money etc. She would say whats the point in dance? for example, as it just seemed unnecessary to her.
    My Mum is an amazing woman, don't get me wrong, and she had a hard task raising both me and my sister as a single mother. But it's important to see your children as individuals, those in which you speak and understand them like getting to know any new person in life. I think a large disparity I have with my Mum is the whole 'her not knowing me'. Because talks like that just don't happen at home, just because you create a life doesn't mean you know them.
    Anyway honestly my family life isn't so bad, and I get along with all of my family, and love them, but my point is I never blossomed with them, I blossomed when I left home (young at 16) and lived with other peoples families, because they communicated with each other and gave independence and support for you to become autonomous.

    "I don't want to be a parent after 18". Excuse me? This is a disgusting mentality entirely and shows lack of responsibility for their own kids. I feel bad for her children.
    There is absolutely nothing wrong saying "some people should not be parents". Your goal in life isn't to have children. It's to be a great person. If your personal circumstances enable you to have a child, then you better ensure you take good care of them in a way better than the previous generation

  • Rosa Myers

    Parents shouldn’t say “I pay the bills, I put a roof over your head” of course that’s probably true, but when you had a kid you knew you were gonna have to pay for them and feed them and provide for them. That’s what you signed up for. So don’t make them feel bad about it, try to help them understand that they should be grateful for your support. Then both will feel appreciated 😌

    For the strict parents. You are just making a sneaky kid and a relationship without trust. As humans we need to learn from our mistakes and when someone tells a kid or teenager not to do something it only makes them want to do it more . My best friends mom is very strict and particularly about dating. However my friend has a boyfriend who is one of my best friends and a very good guy. She hates lying to her mom but when she makes such strict rules like no dating until you have a degree it only forces my friend to lie

    You NEED parents that are a balance between the two. I have friends that can swear at their mother, stay up all night playing videogames, and never do anything around the house. I am 13 and my friends are from 12-15. My mom is super nice but is strict at times where it’s needed, getting me to bed at 10:00 on school nights, taking away my phone, computer etc when I don’t take up my dishes after a few days or clean my room for a couple days.. I love my parents and I can’t stand parents whose kids act like literal zoo animals in public, one of my biggest pet peeves

  • TripsCloudsPureBliss

    Yeah... Let's face it, there are good and bad ways to do each and everyone one of the things discussed in this video. My mother thought it was okay to spank but did not have the emotional maturity/mental stability to handle that responsibility. She just physically abused us and left us with traumatic memories of it. I'm all grown up and turned out okay, but I'll be the first to tell you that I didn't turn out okay because of the beatings, I turned out okay DESPITE the beatings.

    everyone is talking about the “what’s the worst that can happen? they can break an arm, oh well” moment but like HAL IS DEFENDING (with no solid argument) SPANKING A CHILD
    spanking a child is imposing a constant fear in them. telling a kid that they are not suppose to do something because they will get punished, not because they reconfigured their opinions/morals, but because their scared of feeling the pain.
    is proved through psychology that punishing a child in ANY WAY, but especially SPANKING traumatizes them. and maybe some adult who was spanked is thankful to their parent, but i’m sure they don’t know the huge emocional damage that this has in their day to day life.
    as the future generation I ask, PLEASE don’t this! we can shape the world to a better place, don’t traumatize your children, they don’t deserve that. talk to them, teach them! i’m sure this takes a lot of patience and courage and it’s not the easy way, but when they become adults, they will be a better human being 😐❤️

Showing your child boundaries & authority is HEALTHY & MORALLY correct. Stuff free range, my children need to have manners, respect & morals...
