Peace yall, Now I had my son at a young age, his mothers...as well as my own lifestyle was wild to say the least. At the moment of his birth I gave all that up and decided I would never allow him to waist his intelligence, talents, or life like I had been doing. From the jump there were 3 staples in his life: education, respect, responsibility...as soon as he could talk he learned the value of sir and ma'am (and got daily vocabulary words)...as soon as he could count we started math...as soon as he asked for something...HE WORKED FOR IT...and took care of it. All I heard from these new age I'm my kids homey type parents (young and old) was I was to strict...I expected to much from him to soon and things of that nature. Now at the age of 4 he's outscoring 1st graders on aptitude tests...I'M SO PROUD OF HIM and I don't for one minute regret being strict. So destee fam...do yall think more parents should stick to that highly disciplined (but still loving) old school style of parenting.
