Comments: parenting extremes

I'm sorry about your dad. My dad won't take his medication except under duress either.

Sorry about your dad. Any kind of mental illness is always difficult to deal with, and I hope that your mum will be able to get a break if your dad gets hospitalised.

I agree about the parenting issues...it always seems to be that case of damned if you do, damned if you don't. Growing up I remember swearing to myself there were things I'd do differently from the way my parents raised me if I had kids, but already, even without the kids yet, I feel myself realising why they did what they did.

Is smacking a big issue over there? There seem to be lots of debates here about whether it should be banned or not...
