I Dare You to Parent Me

Sometimes they just have to do it, don't they? They have to get into some big power struggle just to see if I'll parent them.

If I choose to ignore them, it empowers them. If I engage it empowers them. But in the end, I win sometimes.

It's the dares that get me.

When I tell someone to do something and they say, "No, I'm not going to do it" then sometimes I just have to jump in and force them to.....

My weakness maybe. Sometimes winning at all costs is an unnecessary waste of time.

But sometimes, the parent has to win.

wondering which kid today? Well, pick one. So far we're up to three of them.... Salinda, Rand and Ricardo. I'm winning every one.
