Back to basics. I have a set of things that I just won't budge on, and for us it seems to work. Those things help me to retain some of my sanity, and hopefully in the long run will help to create fairly well-rounded kids. Ultimately, I want my kids to know that nothing in life is free and that hard work pays off.

Back to basics. There are a thousand parenting theories out there. But when it comes to modern parenting theories and styles, I think there's a huge potential for confusion. Yes, it's great to give kids the responsibility of making decisions sometimes, but do they get to decide that sitting at the dinner table is beneath them? Nope. Sure, no one wants to yell 24/7 and there's huge benefits to not yelling at our kids. But does that mean thy shouldn't ever be told off? No way!

Back to basics. For that reason, we don't have the TV on during the day at all. Instead we have the radio on. I noticed a massive positive difference as soon as I stopped turning it on in the morning. my three-year-old spent just over an hour-and-a-half playing in her bedroom quietly. To me, that's priceless.

Back to basics. I don't think I'm too strict with my kids, but by modern standards many of the things I feel really strongly about are outdated. Some people would argue that I expect too much from my kids, or that I'm too tough with them too soon. I don't expect miracles (kids are kids after all!) but I do expect more than most other parents I know
