Man, these are tough issues are they? There is no clear cut answer or solution. Of course, we know our girls the best, and as parents make unpopular decisions daily on their behalf. I think sticking to it, not giving in and repeating over and over why we make the choices we do, it will eventually sink in, even though they may 'hate' us for days, they will come around.Originally Posted by remote_goddess;2454951;
About the hypocrite bit......it's fun to be a cool, hip mom, I am too, but my kids know I'm the parent, I'm not the best friend. In the back of my mind, I just try to be consistent and make the best choices and live the example I set for my kids, because if I don't then that is what erodes respect in their eyes.
And, finally Viva Payless! Man, I love that store. Boo Hoo if they are going more upscale, say it aint so.....?!?
