Really, is a parent classified as a ''caregiver?'' If Yes, I believe this to be wrong, the parent should be categorized as the parent.
Yes, we should be friendly with our children, but we should also be their tutors, and correctors, providing them access to education, family trips to beneficial educative places of history, museums, the theater, and the like, in company with sports, etc., and yes, playing sportingly with them, as we see in the picture above. But our children should not see us as their friends. beneficially, our children should know, without a shadow of a doubt, that we are first, and foremost, the parent, that yes and no, means exactly that.
Teaching them manners and correct social behavior should be paramount and disciplining them when they misbehave. Let me be crystal clear here, NO, I am not advocating physical punishment, au contraire. Exactly the opposite. But when I see a child in the grocery store, picking up apple after apple, licking them and putting them back, pulling a grape from its stalk, and running back at least twice to repeat this action, in direct view of a parent, or, as I saw only two weeks past, a child pulled a packet of Lay's chips from the shelf, throwing it to the ground, and then trampling on it, only for the mother to quietly say, ''johnny'', with the child replying, ''But Mommy, it sounds funny''. This event was followed by the mother, picking up the crushed packet and placing it back on the shelf! What does this say to the child? I pulled it off the shelf and as she turned away, dropped it into her cart, behind a dozen carton, of sodas.
