When I was little I swore I was gonna let my kids be kids - run around like wild beasts, finger paint every day, and draw on the walls.
Well now I'm a mom and I am wondering if I am too hard on my dd1, that I don't let her be a kid. She's not quite three...
One thing I'm wondering is she likes to scream loudly sometimes. When she does, we tell her it hurts our ears and we'd like her to use her indoor voice. If she doesn't comply we often tell her we're leaving the room, and follow through, or ask her to leave the room. Is this fair? Should I just let her be a kid and make noise?
How loud do you let your kids be in the house?
