if you give kids zero restrictions they’ll become the nicest fucking kids ever who never do drugs or get into trouble i know because my parents let me do nothing but eat chicken nuggets all day and read hentai until 4am and i am a straight A student
Seriously though this seems to be the case with a ton of people I know, if you don’t restrict them all the time they actually do better and are mentally healthier
one of my really close friends in highschool had parents like this and she died from a pill overdose because they let her do whatever she wanted and whatever she wanted was to party excessively so i feel like this isnt the best possible mode of parenting.
Exactly. There has to be some type of restriction for kids, lest they find themselves in trouble with their health or otherwise. Plus, psychologically, the majority of children crave the attentiveness of certain restrictions and many of those that don’t get it act out to gain it.
