Iím tough on my kids.

I was raised that way, so I come by it rightly, but I also look to break the legacy of poor parenting where appropriate. To weed out the poor practices where I can discern them. I might be mistaken occasionally as to which practices work.

Thatís where a recent generation of parents went astray and erred on the side of permissiveness. It looked good on paper.

So I donít know where Iím making shrewd parenting decisions or overcompensating for that societal blunder.

Dad was harsh, but I recall being a happy kid, despite the despot.
