    Kids need guidelines, routines and rules. I grew up in a home with a lot of dysfunction. My parents were strict when it suited, I couldn’t go further than my own tiny block in a suburban area at 15. I was yelled at and reprimanded very heavily if I didn’t make eye contact, seemed disrespectful, etc. but I also never had a clear routine. I fed myself, I never was told where we were going, etc. I left home at 16 and I’ve been out ever since. Thank goodness I was so damn independent, but if I had been nurtured more and given more room to grow but had some routine I might’ve been less rebellious, more happy and less inflexible when it comes to stress about my routines. I hate it when I have no idea where I’m going or what I’m doing next. It’s terrible.

    In my country, we outlawed things like corporal punishment, not only by educators in schools, but more recently by parents. A little over a decade later, the children of the day have turned into our criminal element. A strict upbringing results in respectful teenagers who understand that their behavior bring repercussions, some of which are negative.
    We have a generation of children who have grown up knowing that they can behave in the worst ways, and even the threat of repercussions are responded to with back-chat like, "If you punish me, I'll tell my teacher that you hit me, and you'll go to prison." We have children in our schools that will physically assault their teachers, knowing that if the teacher does anything but retreat in defending themselves, that teacher may lose their jobs.
    And yet, after giving these children the keys to the castle, suddenly our society expects them to be mature and responsible as of their 18th birthday.
    The biblical proverb "Spare the rod and spoil the child" is absolutely true.

    Some of these people's opinions I believe are definitely not right, but some are understandable. Some of these are reminiscent of my dad's parenting style, he lets me have freedom, as a 13 year old, but he doesn't let me just go wherever I want, and if I break the rules set for me, that freedom is taken away for a period of time. Rules are crucial in parenting, as long as they aren't so strict your child has no space to make their own decisions. And for my mum, she has rules too, though now that i'm a teenager, she sometimes talks to me as a friend does in convorsation, and that's her choice :)

    Also I agree with Nguyen the most, he sounds like a great parent!

    Spanking kids is gross. I remember when I lived in America for 2 years; my high school teachers could spank students. Out of curiosity I asked one of my teachers to do it to me. It was kinda fun lmao BUT the only reason I enjoyed it was because it was out of my own sexual fantasies. Which has clearly shown me that spanking CHILDREN is completely and utterly gross. STOP IT INSTANTLY.

    I feel like being hardcore strict is no better than being hardcore free-range. On the one hand, you'll end up with a child that goes wild in college when they're finally away from their parents and start doing intense drugs/partying/not taking care of themselves. On the other, you'll have a kidnapped nine-year-old who you let walk two miles to school by themselves.

    All of the free range parents look like they’re free range parents. Ya feel??? Also I fall in between. I would raise my child to be smart, safe, wise, and hopefully good but after a certain point they are going to make their own choices. I would not like them to be 13 and making all their own choices but age appropriate choices.

  • Sunset TM

    Strict parents create sneaky and fearful children because most strict parents lie (You can tell me anything, I wont hurt you, etc) making the child think it's okay. Free-range parents create children with no manners and respect so they are more likely to get in trouble in the world. In addition these free-range children are more likely to get hurt (raped,touched,etc) because the parent let them do whatever outside saying "They need be trusted and teenagers need privacy". Not all parents do this but in my opinion there is no correct way to raise a child cause you never know how they will come out

  • Sierra Lyons

    As a former K4 teacher and kid (haha) I will say what I thought was the obvious: kids don’t have the cognitive development to be trusted to make certain situations. Their fight or flight response isn’t even at a level that is high enough for them to ride the subway alone in NY at 9. That is absolutely ridiculous. Although a kid may have good intentions they still shouldn’t be trusted to make all of their decisions. A parents job is to provide guidance and direction. Not completely control the kid like a robot but they definitely should mold the kid to use both intellect and wisdom. Those two things have to be nurtured and developed. You can’t just expect a child to be wise and intelligent on their own hence why we have school.

    I grew up with parents who were on the stricter side, they followed the Bible as well. I am very glad for how they raised me. I knew the difference between right and wrong and didn’t want to sneak because I WANTED to do the right stuff. They spanked me and I really am thankful. When they spanked me they would tell me “I am only spanking you because I love you and what you to do what is right” parenting is a very valuable and special gift, don’t screw up lol.

    I personally had a dad that spanked me and my 4 siblings when we were kids, because he thought it was right according to The Bible. Now we all have and still are suffering from depression, PTSD, anxiety and more. I really don't believe violence towards a child- or anyone for that matter, leads to anything good. That's my opinion and experience anyway.

    Sometimes I think we forget that parents were once children themselves. Just because a person becomes an adult that doesn’t mean the have this magical adult light switch that goes off and all things wise enters in. Children don’t come with an instruction manuals lol parents who care are only doing what they believe to be the best based on their upbringing and experiences. My cousin mom didn’t care what she did and her mom was a “friend” kind of mom and she told me although she got to do anything she wanted when she was a child she hates it now because it’s hard for her to be structured/discipline in anything. Also, when we were kids and I told her how strict my parents were she made the comment I wish my mom cared about me like that. I am not a parent yet but damn cut your parents some slack (referring to some of these comments). My mom worked 8 hrs a day and my dad up to 10 to provide the best life for me I’m pretty sure when they were helping me chase my dreams they put a lot of theirs on hold. Everyday my daddy use to talk about how them folks at that job got on his last nerves and with every penny he made, it went towards my flute lessons, track shoes, grocery, school supplies, bills he and my mom did all the work, they dealt with petty coworkers and annoying bosses to make sure I had a good life...yeah they wanted me, yeah I’m probably sure they had an idea of what parenting was and what it required of them that doesn't make it easier and neither do some least y’all parents care...I know some kids who wish they parents showed any interest in them and their well being. Some of y’all just ungrateful and annoyingly entitled I can’t wait for some of y’all to become parents then you can show the world how perfect parenting is done....😒

    Creatively , yes kids should have free range. In society no free range it’s a recipe for tragedy. I see kids as young a 3 & 4 walking home from a bus stop BY THEMSELVES. A kid can easily be overpowered. Besides that amount of free range when they get older especially will have no respect for there parents. Hence why you always see these kids cursing, smacking their parents.

    Honestly I think a mix of both, some free range and some strict. For example my mom is both, and she lets us do some stuff but also she makes me turn in the ipod I use, I don’t have a phone, the only stoical media I have is RU-clip, no google,no tik Tok, ect, I don’t have a T.V. In my room, We do jobs, we don’t just do screens, we do goals, my mom still asks if I want to hangout with my friends she still asks Were are you going, how late are you staying and ect, she goes through my pictures, texts. So I think parents should be both strict, and free range.
