  1. When you find yourself arguing with your kids and not understanding how they can be so upset, and later that night at a neighborhood gathering, your neighbors say how polite and well mannered your hild is, and you look at them with a strange glance – my kid is a monster at home because daughter or son knows they are always safe to be as wild as they want, because I will keep them safe, always!

    • exactly. my oldest was awarded a national award last month; people from all over the country were congratulating her and then telling me how deserving she is, the work she’s done etc. I’m not kidding, I just numbly nodded and said thank you because the entire time I’m thinking “they don’t *LIVE* with this 17-year old” and it is because at home, with us, she can be herself. Her sullen, teenage, stubborn, self 😉

  2. It’s hard to let them learn on their own and teach them all at the same time, isn’t it?
