We all have things our parents did that we didn't like so much. Do you think you'll continue the trends, or change them? I can think of a few things I'd do differently, and because I'm watching something about Christmas, that's where I'm going to start:

First: I won't get my male children any clothes for Christmas. I don't care how much my baby mama wants to get my son a neato new Ninja Turtles sweater. They won't want to wear it cause it's itchy, and that is money that could have been spent on Ninja Turtles action figures. Way to fuck up, Mom and Dad. Now, if I have a girl, then it's understandable. But no five year old boy wants to wake up at four in the morning, excited out of his mind to see that he's got tons of presents, and then open them up to find that they're mostly clothes. We don't care about them. That's why they get so dirty when we're outside playing. That doesn't mean you need to buy me new ones, it means I will get my Donald Duck shirt dirty, too.

And I won't tell them Santa Claus exists. Because I feel it will take away trust. Same with the Easter Bunny.

I wouldn't be too strict on my kids, I'd bring them up with good manners and morals and respect of other people, but I'd always encourage individuality and personal expression. I'd also make my children feel that they can trust me with anything and tell me things and communicate with me. If it's one thing my parents and I don't share it's trust, because they're so stupidly religious, I even have to lie to them when I go to gigs and stuff and I don't want my children to grow up lying to me.

I'm trying not to let my parents shape my parenting too much. Obviously I'm pretty biased about what did or didn't work, and as a psych guy I'll have quite a handle on the theories behind behavior management and personality and such, it's just to apply them.


Ahemememem, I mean, I wouldn't touch their bums lolololololo.

My parents were never strict with me. Well, my dad wasn't. My mom was. But my dad usually didn't think what I did was that bad, so he never really held up the punishments. The only time I think a grounding actually stuck was in the fourth grade when I was told if I got another 3 on my behavior report card, I'd be grounded for two weeks and had to do the dishes every night. I changed the 3 to a 2 with some white out and showed it to my mom in a dimly lit room. But I got caught anyway. Damn it. My dad thought I showed spunk by doing it, but he still had to keep up with the punishment.

However, if it's something funny, I'll probably let it slide. I had my god son at a book store one day, and he kept screaming, "Help! STRANGER!" when I'd try to take his hand and take him somewhere else. His parents wanted to punish him for misbehaving with me, but I thought it was hilarious so I asked them not to. I also taught him how to hide his ritalin under his lips so his parents think he took it...

I won't bullshit them about Santa Clause and the Easter Bunny.

I'll also decide on what they can do according to their maturity levels, not their age like my parents do way too much. And I won't go out of my way to embarrass them. It's not a funny thing to do, it's just cruel. My mother purposefully embarrassing me resulted in about two years of harrassment from people at my school, and I don't want to put my own children through that.

I would say yes and no. I think my dad should have disciplined me more, and maybe not let me get away with certain things. One year for Christmas, against my mother's wishes he bought me and my older brother a katana, throwing stars, and nunchucks. And we went nuts with them. We were in some kind of martial arts class at the time, but we didn't use them properly. And we always wanted to use our little brother as target practice. Thank God my Mom was around to make sure that we didn't. My dad was always more of a buddy than a parent. Which is funny cause after he and my mom split up last year, he's trying to be more of a disciplinarian to the younger kids, and no one really speaks to him any more because he's so unfair about trivial things.

I don't mind the whole Santa Claus thing. I have fond memories of my father trying to sneak presents from Santa into my room while I slept, and falling over all the mess on my floor. I always thought it was very sweet of him. :P

I think I'll try to boost my kids' self esteem, instead of constantly trying to bring them down. I won't tell them how disappointed I am of them.

I'll also not be forcing them to be Confirmed into the Catholic faith unless they want to be. I'd like them to be baptised and raised in the faith, but I feel Confirmation needs to be something they choose themselves.

I wouldn't make them follow a certain religion, or pressure them to ask someone out (what do they not get about me not liking girls?).

I'd do this, but I'm not exactly the greatest person ever when it comes to accepting opinions. I'd teach them to accept other peoples' opinions, but also how to defend their opinions properly instead of what I do and just turn into a contest of who gets angrier.

The golden rule though will be, "If dad does it, it's probably not a good idea to mimic it, unless he says it's okay."
#32
All the serious suggestions are good, but, at some point, OUR parents probably thought this too when they were angry teenagers/young adults, but now they think differently. The same will happen to us later on. And so the cycle goes on.

One thing I always disliked about my Dad is that he seems to get pissy/yell about stupid stuff. Like sometimes my mom will ask him something and he'll just snap at her for nothing. I guess it's 'cause his job is pretty stressful, and he is just in a bad mood when he gets home and can't really help it, but I'd try to avoid doing that. It doesn't really seem to help a lot since it just raises tensions.
