I have a new lunch routine.
It’s Nanny 911 or World’s Strictest parents.
Lately, I feel like my parenting skills need some brushing up. Have you guys seen the ad that talks about how once you have your second baby you’re an “expert” — I have a nice laugh on that one. Especially since the woman has like a 4 year old and a baby. Yup, she’s an expert. I know a good parent when they say they basically have no idea how to parent and are just going by the seat of their pants.
Anyway, Nanny 911 is kind of reminding me how to parent a preschooler again. It’s easy to get lax with those little ones. P has found a lot of freedom in coming out of her bed for an hour every night and I just won’t have it anymore. Rules are rules people.
World’s Strictest parents is helping me think a lot about El Presidante and how I can best serve him by helping him be respectful and obedient.
This week, I was mostly reminded that the parents need a strong marriage to really face the kids with a strong front. Also, that we often think it’s the kids that need changing, when in reality it’s often us that needs to change to fix the kids.
