There has always been a philosophy when it comes to parenting or shall I say that there is a saying – “If you were wild as a kid, then you will be more strict when you are a parent; and if you were sheltered as a kid, you will be more loose as a parent.”
I guess the rationale goes like this:
Either way, a lot of our decisions are made from our experiences, which is sometimes a good thing and a bad thing. Therefore I couldn’t help but to chuckle when I read the Fox News story about Madonna telling her 10 year old daughter to dress LESS sexy.
Hmm… I think Madonna has opted for the other principle of parenting – “Do what I say and not what I do!” Hello, Madonna… as a parent to another parent – THIS NEVER WORKS! As I am struggling to be a good father to my children, I don’t know how many times I have failed in helping my kids do things that I am not wiling to do for myself.
Oh well, hence is the irony of life and it just makes you laugh and keep things real.
