Quoting Noah_Jeffery:" YES EXACTLY!!1 and i agree with u all the way but to be honest my aunt and uncle cant raise kids ... ... [snip!] ... raised was different but by the time I was 5 i had a chore list and a way to earn stuff, thats how i plan to raise my son , "
I'm glad that you choose to raise your kids differently.
But you know... unless you have an 8 or 11 year old, it's hard to understand why someone chose to parent the way they did. Kids are so different. My 7 year old is really difficult to deal with. Sometimes I let him win stupid battles like not having to do the dishes, or else I'd be crying in the corner.
