Definition: These are parents who expect their kids to follow the rules they make, but when the kids stray, the parents tend to be more supportive than punishing.
Bwahahahaha! Okay, I have two things to say about this. First of all, I’m not stupid enough to think my kids are going to follow my rules. I mean, my kid’s the one who outlined every corner in our house with a purple crayon. And the kid who wiped poop on her nightstand last week. And the kid who purposely spilled her yogurt down the heating vent.
And second of all, you want me to do WHAT? Be supportive and NOT punish her for this stuff? I’m like sit down in that corner, young lady, and you can get up when the timer goes off, and then I go set the timer for two years. But apparently I ’m supposed to speak sternly to her and then go enroll her in art class or something.
