Strictly regulating what your child eats. Of course you should monitor/have a say in what they eat, and limit certain foods. I’m saying I’ve seen it happen too many times where a kid has too many limits on their diet and it messes with them from a psychological standpoint. For example, I had to enroll a child at one of the Snoopy be the I in kind shirt Furthermore, I will do this daycares I’ve worked at who was on an extremely strict vegan diet, and even from there it was limited. No soy because the mom didn’t want to support the soy industry, things like that. The child was given his vegan meal at lunch one day, and he looked around at everyone else’s hamburger lunches, and threw his lunch down and said “I want a hamburger, with ketchup and everything on it!” Being vegan is your choice, and it should be your choice as an adult. Children know when they’re treated differently in school, and being exposed in this way can mess with their mental health. Let them eat the school lunches if possible, that way they can eat what everyone else is eating. You can give them soda or fast food as a special treat, once a month or so will not do major damage if you let them know it’s an every once in a while thing. Ok, you’re creating more work for me as a daycare employee, and you’re creating future assault charges against your child. Just don’t do it. Your kid will be a more respected member of society if they don’t partake in the fighting. Tell them to take the high road instead. This one isn’t taught as much as it was when I was young, but I still hear it from time to time. Teach them to talk to the right strangers. The stereotypical kidnapping scenario where a complete stranger lures away a child does still happen, but it’s far more likely they will be harmed by someone they know a family member, a teacher, a family friend, etc. Teach them to be comfortable going to security guards, store employees, etc. Odds are, no one is going to spontaneously kidnap a child that approached them in a mall because they lost their mommy and need help. Make children aware of dangerous situations, such as a man who says he wants you to get in his car and help him find his dog believe it or not, these situations do still happen.

Honestly, it’s up to my children how they will want to talk about me when I’m dead (and when I’m alive too). I would hope that they will be honest with their kids and that they will have many positive things to say about me. Not because of my ego, but because if they have positive memories, but because it would means that I did a good job as a mother and they will be happy, well adjusted human beings, and good parents because of that at least in part. I’m sure that they will have some negative things to say about me, as I;m for sure not perfect, but I hope that they can discuss my defects with affection, because my defects were not as bad as to override all the Snoopy be the I in kind shirt Furthermore, I will do this love. I know that I told my kids some things about my mom when she was not at her best, that she probably would have hated hearing. But my kids know I loved my mom dearly and I still miss her, with all her defects, many of which were inevitable results of being part of a certain generation and their ideas about how to best raise kids. From the start, I wasn’t very needy. According to my mother, I rarely cried as a baby. When I was able to walk and get around on my own, she felt comfortable leaving me by myself while she went to school for a few hours. This made me become very self-reliant early on, and instead of being told not to do certain things, I learned by experience. After an incident where I burned my hand on the stove and nearly set the house on fire, she started leaving me at daycare centers instead. I was gleefully cruel to others, especially to other children. It just seemed to come naturally. It made me happy to see them cry and scream. I was frequently in trouble for being aggressive, hurting other kids, and biting the daycare workers, and for that I got kicked out of a few of the centers. My mother and father disagreed on many things, physical punishment wasn’t one of them. They tried a few different kinds of physical “discipline”, but it’s hard to teach a kid not to hurt others by hurting the kid. I didn’t learn not to hurt others, but I figured out how to lie pretty well and did so often to avoid trouble where I could.
