“Let kids be kids.” This is what my husband tells me – all the time.
We are opposite. I say no. He says yes all the time. I make rules. A lot. Here are a few:
- Gadgets can only be used up to 9pm on weekdays provided they’re all done with their homework.
- I allow them to be on Social Media but yes, I have all the access, all notifs go to my inbox.
- Or they have to finish their homework first then they can go and play outside, in the condition that they should be home before the lamp post opposite the house turns on.
You can’t blame me. He’s not here. What they become will definitely reflect on me and how I raised them. No, I am not trying to be a perfect mom here but I just feel it’s the right thing to do.
