Please, Let's All Travel Back in Time.
If your kids are NOT complaining about how early their bed time is, how seldom they get to play their video games or go on social media sites, that they are bored or never get to have sweets, chips, "junk" food, then you are doing something wrong. There is not one point made below that I don't 100% agree with. As a school social worker for 20 years I have seen this progression. I have also seen the solutions suggested work. Please if you feel like you have been getting it wrong don't be ashamed, we are all guilty and we all have room for improvement.
