As parents we know that we have to inculcate discipline in our children. But how do you ensure that you are not being too harsh?
I am alarmed at the number of parents who accept irresponsible behavior from their children, and even support it, especially in public forums. However, I am afraid that the children are simply following the examples they have been given.
Responsible parents do not cede authority to their children or to the government agencies making capital out of the children, they take charge and determine what their children become. This is what God intended when He commanded children to honour their parents. If this was to happen, discipline would start at home and the whole generation would be a disciplined one, points out Ayub Chege in this search of solutions to the crumbling family life.
Somehow dysfunctional parents leave their kids and young adult children with no legacy on how to live responsibly. It is imperative that one shows and teaches responsible behavior to these soon to become adults. Younger adults, by nature are arrogant and profess to know it all. The last thing one needs in life is to be taking care of adult children, as a result of their poor upbringing and careless attitudes reinforced by parents and care givers themselves.

My biggest pet peeves, when it comes to other people’s parenting, is a statement something like this: "Sometimes kids just need to be spanked. It teaches them the right way to act."
As the mother of teenagers, I often feel underappreciated and even despised at times, but then I remember that I used to think just like my own children do now.
