Too many parents fall into the trap of succumbing to the illogical arguments of their kids.
Teenagers, especially, often argue their groundless points using emotion and subjective reasoning.
This is when good parents must dig their heals in and stick to their guns.
In the long run, no child appreciates a parent who won’t stand their ground.
Sure, they’ll smile, thank you, and even hug you and call you the greatest parent that ever lived for giving in.
Sure, there are times and circumstances when it’s wise to be flexible.
But, if your child’s immediate approval of you is your best evidence of you being a good parent, you’re living in a fool’s paradise.
