I have said this before and I will repeat it here...

ALL children want is to know that when they walk in the room your life has been made better.

IF you can let your children know that, by your words, deeds, and actions then, then ANY parenting style will work.

BTW...I do not mean to brag (but of course I will) but I found the teen years to be quite easy. It wasn't until all hell broke loose in their twenties that things got tougher. AND that age is much more difficult because they actually ARE adults and you have much less control PLUS...they can LEGALLY engage in much riskier behaviour.

During those years I held a few heads over the toilet bowl - and waited nervously in the morning for them to come home after being out ALL night, but lucky for me they learned their lessons very quickly.

Victor,
My 10 year old granddaughter has been like that since she was 7 or 8.
She is praised by her teachers in school for her kindness and manners but is a lunatic at home. :woohoo:
My son-in-law took the door off her bedroom because if her younger sister teased her or she didn't get her way she would constantly storm off, muttering, and go to her bedroom and slam the door. :lol:

When I'm there I will go up to her room, after a few minutes, listen to her complaints, hug her, and after she vents, all is ok with the world again. But then again she has me wrapped around her finger and it makes me sad to see her that way. :lol:
My Grandkids say I’m a cuckoo head. ;)

Great to see you round these parts again (L)

Thanks the kids are great actually have a little bit of life now my daughter age 8 is in 3 rd grade that means I don't have to be at the bus stop to get her off bus or have a legal representative with a valid license signed up and school and bus company informed if I'm not there...... And my son is 13...so I can legally live them at home alone for a couple hours and run out and do something alone...(for those who dont know I've been a single parent for 7 years)......I live in a nice country neighborhood so there's no worries... Just legally now if they kill each other I cant be held responsible...
.....But they are angels at school and with everybody else..they only act up when im around....Of course what's the point of acting up if they cant get a reaction out of me......My son is the Dali Lama....its my 8 year old daughter she can spin me around rip me to shreds and just uses me to sharpen her verbal claws ..because she has to hold it together at school and with everyone else....me and my son are laid back...shes like this is lame ......lets get some drama going in this place ........
She can outlast me and has to have last word and im a praise and ignore parent....no threats or punishment ..just praise good behavior and ignore bad..... But there no ignoring her...till now.... now can run out the house jumping my car and go do something for bit......Shes really really great thou most of the time......and when she's not her IM Sorrys...are real and heartfelt.......Anxiety mixed with self esteem 8 year olds today are like 18 year olds in my day.....I am blessed to have the greatest therapist she saves me saying ITs a Normal Phase... and then tell me not to worry it gets worse...LOL.....

Victor!

so glad you stopped by to give us a brief update and I am ecstatic at your positive news.

It is scary at first ...but hopefully you feel more in control of your own life now.
