Well i admit it, being a mum again at 42 is hard..Well yes i did have Jack three years ago when i was 39, but i was still considered old and now, well i think im ready for the nursing home..lol..All my other children were disciplined severly for wrong doings, and they have turned out incredibly respectful of older memebers of the public, respectful of police and teachers and those in authority. They know right from wrong and have not gotten any police criminal or juvenile records..as of yet..lol..and im very proud of them..BUT..jack is a different kettle of fish..where once i did not permit the kids to eat in my lounge room..jack does it frequently, bottles and dummies were abandonerd at 18 months, Jack still has a night bottle, toilet training started at 18 months and was completed by 2 years, dry nights by three years..jack has yet to even see a potty. I would run and chase my kids for being naughty with a swift whack on the nappy and a good talking too..now im lucky to have gotten out of my seat and the wrongdoing is forgotten, i cant run as fast as him, he is cheeky no end, and most misdameanors go unpunished. Those that he is punished for, become a game and are repeated constantly, which just wears me down..So is this because im older, and less able to run as fast, is it beacuse i perhaps am a little more forgiving of the little things or is it beacause ive seen so many kids go wrong, have wondered about the law and its allowance of child punishment versus abuse.. where using a brand or product or practise was accepted now its frowned upon ie putting honey on dummies, or glyserine on them, not allowed now....Where once i would smack my kids and feel i had done the right thing now i just feel guilty..hmmm parenting sure has changed, or is it just me?
Ok enough of the philosophy of parenting on to some sharing...
