People our age were raised in a different time and era and people call us “old-fashioned.” Compared with all of the helter skelter of today, I sure pray that the young folks would put some “discipline” in their “pipes” and smoke it because what they are smokin’ is not leading down the primrose path.
Help your children grow up with some “articles” of discipline. Say what you mean – and mean what you say and follow up if you are defied.
A good example – we were in the pizza parlor and young family were there with their child which was in a high chair. During our whole meal, the child would let out this scream – “ehhhhhhhh.” It didn’t bother either of the parents, but the rest of the patrons – just rolled their eyes. The parent did not make one mention of correcting the child.
Would someone please explain to me – why would you let this child continue with this display. Now, when we were raised – we might have gotten by with this one time – but, not for the length of time this went on.
Again, I can guarantee you that would not have happened in earlier times in our household – no matter where we were.
