One of my families was following up on a STRONG recommendation to move electronics out of the bedroom. Here is what ensued:
I told the kids that we were moving all electronics into the family room. One child became surprisingly upset and argumentative about this loss of their rights. My husband kept saying, "we love you to much to argue." I listened and gave a few "mhmms" and "I knows." I let my child do the talking. They wanted me to respond with evidence why their cell phone shouldn't be in their bedroom. Don't I trust them? They were frustrated that I wouldn't argue with them.
The punchline is that this child told me I don't need any more parenting classes because they aren't helping.
Too funny! They say our kids won't appreciate us changing, don't they! These parents held their ground and went braindead. Excellent teamwork!
