I thought this was normal today from what I see from my grand kids. No rules. Just right.

Ummm, maybe take it on a case by case basis, and just be there and listen to your kids?

Just a thought.

Your kids need more chores.

Okay. Now write an article on how they reacted the next day when you told them no.

Enjoy digging yourself out of crippling debt and endless legal fees. Your children will bleed you dry and ruin or end your life, if you let them.

I always knew one of the most important things about parenting was setting boundaries and teaching our children patience, discipline and basic social etiquette.

Gee, my encounters with my son's Zoomer peers led me to believe me and the mrs were the only ones who still knew that.

- Set boundaries and expectations
- Don't move goalposts
- Don't negotiate
- Put your napkin in your lap

Also, with extraordinary demands, I will say "yes" with conditions.

"Can I have a pony?"

"Yes, if you earn enough money to buy a ranch and hire a stablehand, because it's not sleeping in the kitchen and I know for sure you aren't going to shovel its shiat."

"Mom, can I kill Timmy?  He took my toy!"

"Well... today is 'yes' day, so go ahead"

They'd live off pizza if they had their way.
Everyone would.
You're ahead of the curve, most kids that age get told yes so much by todays parent they're already diabetic.
