I’d like to say, “Here here!” to the following excerpt from BabyCenter.com:
“Don’t feel guilty about having to say ‘no’ or ‘stop’ to your child. Setting limits is your job. It’s not your responsibility to make sure your child is happy all the time. Not only is that an impossible goal, it’s undesirable. Kids never like to be told no — but there hasn’t been one born yet who didn’t need to hear it. Discipline is as important as love in raising a child.”
Do you fall into the trap of not wanting to be “the bad guy”? Or, are you just too tired sometimes to put up a fight? I confess!
