What makes Traditional Parenting the right style for you?: My husband and I agree that children need to be taught how to be successful adults, not just children happy in the moment (not that our children aren't happy, they are VERY much so). Children need independence, and a the reassurance that Mom and Dad are right there if they really need them. Not to be coddled their whole way to adulthood, where they then find that life is HARD.

What makes Traditional Parenting the right style for you?: Well, as mentioned in my thread, I wasn't sure totally it was the right definition for the type of parenting we use. But, now I think it is the closest thing. I agree with most of the others on this question. Children are way too cheeky and spoiled these days. We strongly feel around our home that the old fashioned ways are best bc most children acted like much better citizens back in the old days and had morals and strong character.

What makes Traditional Parenting the right style for you?: Its the way we were both raised. I am a teacher and too many kids are too cheeky and rude these days because no one has ever said no to them. I do not want my children to turn into disrespectful human beings and so I feel traditional parenting is the best way to achieve this.

What makes Traditional Parenting the right style for you?H and I believe that without boundries kids grow up to be spoiled young adults who can't take responsibilty for their actions. We believe that consequences are a natural part of life. We also believe that while punishement is necessary so is praise and that children need privleges AND responsibility.
