All good thoughts. Lead by example is a must. I definitely had that problem with my parents. They had a phrase, "Do as I say, not as I do."I've heard about the rats too. It was a dopamine experiment, if we're thinking of the same thing. That's what these screens have us all hooked on. I did a dopamine detox during the first few weeks of quarantine. It really does clear your head. &Yes I was one of those kids that had a full blown meltdown when my mom shut off the internet. It was like nothing I would have expected out of myself, even at that age.
This is awesome, thank you. If you write a book, I hope I get the opportunity to read it.
That's some great insight, thank you

by the way, I'm a single parent (she has no other parent in her life) so I tend to set hard boundaries for her. My parents were very strict when I was growing up and I always thought I'd cut my kids a little more slack. With me being an exclusive parent, I feel like I have to set more structure for her but I also respect the independence and creativity that she has by allowing her to express her mind, and make choices that have limitations.
Wow. That's a killer answer.
That’s really good. Your daughter ganna become a track Star by the time she becomes an adult lol
Beautiful, thank you
Stupid automated system. You should have got MHO/Superb Opinion on this, not me.I bow to you, Kingdom. "I go to my fathers. And even in their mighty company I shall not now be ashamed. I felled the black serpent. A grim morn, and a glad day, and a golden sunset!" (King Theoden's death, LOTR.) Well, I guess I'm being a bit dramatic. But that was the next phrase that came to mind.
No worries... I hate the automated system giving MHOs. I think your answer was great and I'm not offended.And I loved the quote! A perfect MissAmanda response!!
That's messed up, I'm sorry to hear how your parents treated you. It's a shame that people still act like that
Thanks it is unfortunate that they chose to be that way as parents but the good news is they showed me how not to be
That makes perfect sense, thanks for sharing
Thank you for the awesome referral
I try to make myself useful, and I know I certainly don't have all the answers, so I call in others when it's helpful. I have respected this lady for many years!
