I've have been discussing parenting styles with my DD now that she has her own child. It's interesting to watch her behaviour & to listen to her thoughts on raising kids. My kids and my Mom always told me I was an over protective Mom. I don't deny it, I was engaged in their lives, wanted to know where they were going & restricted their activities. Did it help keep them safe growing up, no idea. Did it stop them from doing stupid things or being independent? Not that I can see. I do think it thought them that life has boundaries but who knows. lol
The eldest 2 have traveled & lived on their own for several years. They make some lifestyle decisions that they know I won't agree with & so we just agree that what I don't know, I won't have to deal with.
