College High school, if the kid is happy Never Middle School, i guess High School, only if i like them When I trust their maturity What do think about the kids rooms? They have to share a room It not my room.. I can't tell them how to keep it It can be as colorful, abstract, plain, artsy or creative as they want. It's their sanctuary. It must be perfectly in order, nothing on walls, no useless decorations, and neat. Shouldn't it represent them? As long as it is not a rated R or explicit room What are your ideas when referring to housework? The mother cleans everything Everyone does THEIR OWN work, nobody else's No one can do more than the other, young kids have to do something too so they don't fight They do them, I watch to make sure they do it right Everybody does everybody's work They get done whenever What do you do if your kid wants to go away? Follow them or make them wear a tracking anklet Support them 100% and pay for everything Not allow them to go until they are in their early 20, and think more like me, the right adult Talk everything over gently and make decisions that the child is comfortable with Talk them into staying with the family and being traditional Let if go and let them make their own mistakes Would you control your child's dating relationship? Never, that's not my business No.. but I would need their family history, GPA, and an interview to ensure they are safe to be around No, as long as they are happy Somewhat, I don't want them to see/text/call/contact each other all the time Not really, I would set curfews but I don't care if they aren't like me, I'm not the one dating them. Only if i think they are unsuitable. My children have to date what I think is right. How do you react in arguments? Hit the kid for not seeing my way, and yell at them to make them fear me Slap them on the spot and tell them to shut up Walk away and hope the problem goes away Stop talking and let the kid speak, then I talk and we come to an agreement without screaming Let the kid talk, they might know more than me sometimes Not listen to what they have to say, I know more, I'm a parent!
