Come first?


I don't mean in an emergency or their general well being.

You'd like my grandma's layered salad (not for a easy night necessarily, but you'd like it).

My kids have always had to have soy sauce on their rice but a Japanese friend recently introduced them to Ponzu and now thats all they want.

My mom makes a salad of thawed peas, slivered, raw cauliflower and with a hazelnut and garlic dressing. It is very good.

Sure, they should always come first if you want to raise entitled, self-centered children who aren't capable of making decisions or coping with problems. But if you want to raise healthy, self-sufficient children who know how to weather troubles, give and take, and share, then they shouldn't always come first, or even second.


Good parents know when to put their kids first and when to put other things first. These

I find that if I NEVER plan to take my kids to fast food, and feed them healthy every meal we are at home, then it is not a big deal when we are in a bind and eat fast food. That way they only get it once or twice a month at the most.
