Lami Phillips recently shared some parenting tips on her instagram page, the mother of one talked about how being disciplined by her parents has shaped her life and expressed her displeasure at parents who can’t control their kids.
Read her note below;
“I know our parents were a tad bit too harsh sometimes.. Didn’t listen often .. Etc..
But really should we go sooooo far away from how we were raised. How badly did we turn out? I’m not saying you should beat your kid at every turn or shut them up and stop them from thinking and analyzing.. Let’s raise brave and confident kids but please let them be disciplined.. We were raised better.. I got many cans of whoopass as a teenager.. Trust me.. And it didn’t kill. It put me in check.. Made me ask several questions before a potential goof.. My parents talked to and with me.. I think I turned out ok (not counting the occasional bouts of epic blondeness and olodoism) . When I’m at the airport.. Or mall.. Supermarket and I see kids that the parents can’t control (not wont control) I wonder.. Often I butt in like a headmistress and scold.. Kids should understand “no” and “yes”: they can ask why.. But let them know when “no” means “no” .. #my2cents“
