Today I got a very unsettling message from a person who isn’t quite happy with one of the things that I said on the homepage. What “triggered” them was me saying that parents should keep permissiveness at a minimum when dealing with kids. In other words, what I was trying to say is that parents should learn to say no to their kids, at least sometimes. In the recent years more and more parents have been saying yes to every little request and that their kids have. This isn’t healthy and I think we should put a stop to this.
