    My kid would deeply regret doing such a thing. As bad as it might get, however, she would live. That's more than I could have hoped for if I had tried the same in my day.

    Thats not admitting they're wrong, thats backing down from a child. How can a parent even begin to raise or teach a child who they ALLOW tocommand from them? I mean no affense to you Alpha but you and your parents are both wrong. Children have no position to command anything of their parents and parents have a duty to command discipline and respect from their children. You aren't just born with the right to do and say as you please, its a right that you earn more and more of over the years through respect and learning. Dude, if you were my kid, pullin a stunt like that would land you absolutely no TV, phone, internet, games, NOTHIN........and if you didn't like that then you shouldn't have attempted to tell me where or what my position as a parent should be.

    Bruce, you ain't lying buddy. That would've been cause for a swat at least. Not to mention what would have been taken away.

    Children deserve respect too. this is not a one way relationship where parents own children and can tell them to do anything and the children mindlessly follow whatever they are told. I have a brain. I can think. Tell me to do something stupid and I will not do it unless you explain to me why it isn't stupid. Questioning authority is not disrespectful or bad in any way. You know why I respect my parents? because they admit when they are wrong and THEY actually respect me too. They treat me like an adult and so I respect them. They don't punish me for standing up for what I believe. They don't punish them because it was THEIR fault.

    And I've earned that right. My parents also respect me and trust me because I respect and trust them too. (and obay them WHEN IT MAKES SENSE). Treating kids like you said (punishing them because YOU are stupid and unfair) just makes them angrier at you and they won't truly respect you.
    Respect is NOT the lack of disrespect
    You're the parent. You should admit when you're wrong. That's not bending to your child's will, it's respecting them.

    MUTUAL respect is the key. parenthood is not a one way relationship.
    and you know what? I respect my mom more now because she is mature enough to admit when she is wrong. Especially now that I hear what you would do to your poor kids.

    Starman,
    No, I haven't.

    Alpha,
    I agree , you should admit when you're wrong. It's the only way your kids will learn it. However I don't see how your mom was wrong because that she decided you should be off the comp at 10:00. I don't know anything other than what you posted about it but it sounded to me like your mom made a rule and you tried to make it miserable for her to uphold it and it worked. Is that the situation? Or is there something that was a reason for it that she turned out to be wrong about? I am not trying to target you, parents that can't control their kids really bug me.
