“No, the problem is parents not being parents. Mine never screamed and cried for a candy bar at the check out. They knew better.”

You are right. But where we differ is that I gave in many times in the beginning until I finally put the hammer down. Now they ‘window shop’ at the check out but put it all back without me saying a thing.

I learn a little slower than other parents.

(I doubt that.)

An 'experienced' parent is one step ahead of their children.

A Parent is one step behind their children, but quick to learn.

A Non Parent is one who can't outwit their own children.
