Re: Being mean to your kid

Here is an idea. Why don't you worry about how to raise your kid, and I will worry about how to raise mine. If it doesnt pertain to you, mind your own business and stop trying to force your beliefs on everyone else. If I want to yell at my kid for being lazy, being a punk, etc, then I will and nothing you or anyone else says will ever change that and I will deal with the consequences for my actions when the time comes, not you.



Fine, just yell at your kid to pass the puck then. He's impeding the development of the other players on the team.[/quot

If your kid could keep up and get in the proper position I would yell at him. Unfortunately your little bender is rewarded for skating up and down the ice and never touching the puck. Its all good though it today's world of politically correct, everyone gets a trophy attitude.

I didn't say impeding the development of my kid. I said others on the team.

Also, your yelling makes the other parents on the team uncomfortable, and alienates your son from his teammates. So there are other consequences besides the relationship between you and your son.

Re: Being mean to your kid

A lot of kids go through periods where they will slack off when it comes to sports, homework, family chores, etc. You are pretty much obligated to point this out and get them on track. Saying nothing breeds bad habits that can affect their overall quality of life and potentially mess up their future.

It's when a kid no longer has the desire or drive for an activity that you have to tread very carefully. If you think your kid might be just playing hockey to please you he probably is and lecturing or berating him will go very badly. It's probably the hardest thing for a parent to admit their kid doesn't want to play anymore but it happens to many and the best thing you can do is support them and find something positive to fill the void.

very few kids today fear their parents. At least from what I can see.

Re: Being mean to your kid

Let's be real here, many early Baby Boomer parents (say up to 1980'ish) were terrible parents by humain standards. The had no idea how to raise kids and many had to actually fend for themselves on a daily basis. Yes the were good workers but they ate too much, drank too much and could care less about what their kids were up to.

The current problem is the off-spring of these parents have over-shot it the other direction. An overcompensation of involvement, interest and spending on the little angels.

Is it wrong? Time will tell. Is it hard to witness? Yes.
