Are you a disciplinarian at home? Or the other way round? Are you a parent that say “no” and always stand by your decision when your child is doing something not right?
For my case, I think I am both good and bad cop. Some days I tend to be lenient but othe days I would be strict on my little gal. I would tell her off on not to do certain things. I spending more time with her compared to her daddy who usually late after work. So she is more attached to me, yet when I am angry she would know not to displeased me further.
I try not to spoil her much as that is not a way in bringing up a child. You should pamper them, but not spoil them. It is good to praise them when they are at their best behavior than scold them for their bad behavior. Children learn and strive better when you praise them. A “thank you for keeping your toys away” is better than a “Do not leave your toys on the floor”. Children are like us, they have feeling and they feel great when you praise them rather than reprimand them.
So, I ask you back. Are you a good cop or a bad cop with your children?
