Perfectly Imperfect Parents - Picking Your Battles

Category:  Perfectly Imperfect Parents

Do you allow a two-piece bathing suit but prohibit sleepovers? Value math over music homework? The hosts discuss situations in which parents must pick their battles with their kids and determine what values to promote over others.

  • Getting them to keep their bedrooms and the rest of the house clean! Pick up after themselves. I have 2 teenage daughters. They do no chores.

  • This was great except for one thing I`ve found... It doesn`t stop when they`ve graduated high school and moved out! A lot of the choices I made for my children (no sleepovers, food and clothing choices...) have flowed into their adult lives and have been the topics of many "conversations" that I`m hoping will now lead to greater understanding on both our parts...

  • Since I shifted to view my children as the leading edge of human evolution, things are running much smoother. Cooperation is forthcoming on its own and battles have all but ceased. If I want a different result, I must change how I think, it has nothing to do with my children - they will respond differently to me, once I have changed my thinking patterns.

  • Yes! You and I both know that, but he doesn`t seem to get it yet and he doesn`t seem to hear it when explained to him... He will get it one day, I`m sure! Thanks for responding!

  • I think I get it. However if your son is an adult now then he has the ability to make his own choices and if he disagrees with things that you said when he was growing up he has the chance to explore other options now - and that`s what he should do because you can`t undo any of the parenting choices you made. This is not to say any choices you made were wrong, but if he`d like to do things differently then he should do that instead of trying to blame you for anything. That`s a useless activity.

  • It`s a case by case scenario, and up to each parent with what they feel comfortable with. Play dates statistically are safer because they usually take place during the day instead of when kids and other supervising adults are asleep. However, if you are unsure of the house/environment in which your child is playing maybe a play date without you there isn`t the best idea.

  • Thanks for the recommendation -- I watched and it was informative, however, it did not address my issue, which is the issue of parenting young adults and the impact of my parenting decisions have on their current day lives and decisions... (he feels my decisions of the past still have an overwhelming influence on what he has choses and continues to choose that may not be in his best interest...) (does that make sense to you?)

  • trying to be parental with another adult causes too many problems. not being the adult with the children causes too many problems. adults acting like children causes the biggest problems.

  • If your kids can`t have sleepovers, can they have play dates?

  • Parents will always battle with their children (you can watch our episode on managing the generations for proof of that) but the key is compromise and seeing where everyone can meet in the middle.

  • I think that first of all as a parent you must have your life goals very clear. From there, you pick the battles you want to fight with your kids, depending on how transcendental they are going to be in their lives according with the goals you have set as the most important things for life that you are transmitting as a parent for your kids.

  • You guys are amazing!!!! You should have longer session. I think academics is very important. My son had a tutor for math. Now he is very confident in math. He is very thankful for all those tough nights!!!
