Wondering after V had a strop after I wouldn’t buy him lucozade, what do you not allow your kids to have…if you don’t have kids then imagine.
Energy drinks, because…well…obvious really.
Chocolate advent calendars…I never had them and there’s no need for chocolate every day.
A tortoise. Just can’t commit to them commiting to care for it for 100 years or whatever.
Obviously I don’t let him drink red bull or booze or coffee, but I’m really permissive about sweets and stuff like that. He’ll eat pretty much anything and is learning a lot about moderation and self-regulation in a way that I certainly couldn’t handle as a child (or indeed an adult.)
Likewise screen time- we’ve never made it into a limited ‘treat’ and as a result he doesn’t go mad asking for it- he’d rather play on the floor with some slime or headbutt a bush in the garden.
Never thought I’d be like this but I’m a totally zen parent who believes in children having self determination from the earliest possible age.
