Re ???The Case for Free-Range Parenting,??? by Clemens Wergin (Op-Ed, March 20):

Yes, I, too, had a free-range childhood, able to bike and explore all over town and come home just when the streetlights turned on. And yes, I had some experiences that were frightening and from which I learned judgment and resourcefulness.

Yet the argument made by Mr. Wergin and others who share his view is too glib. The fact that everybody used to do something with abandon is absolutely no proof that it is the correc…………… continues on New York Times

Do You Know these Five Tried-and-True Parenting Tips?
News from The Catholic Sun:

Is parenting your top priority? Here are five of the top tried-and-true parenting tips that can be used for children of any age.

1. Nurture Your Child’s Self-Esteem

Kids start developing their sense of self as babies—and they see themselves through their parents’ eyes. Your tone of voice, body language and expressions are absorbed by your kids. Your words and actions as a parent affect their development of self—so help them to see their value.

2. Catch Kids Being Good

Have you ever stopped to think about how many times you react negatively to your kids in a given day? You may find yourself criticizing far more often than complimenting. Try to catch them doing acts of kindness and goodness to emphasize their abilities to help others.

3. Set Limits and Be Consistent With Your Discipline

Discipline is necessary in every household. The goal of discipline is to help kids choose acceptable behaviors and learn self-control. They may test the limits you establish for them, but they need those limits to grow into responsible adults.

4. Make Time for Your Kids

Parenting experts answer “Why are teens today so disrespectful?”

Parenting experts answer “Why are teens today so disrespectful?”
News from Allentown Morning Call:

May 06, 2012|By Kathy Lauer-Williams, Of The Morning Call

Q: My husband and I had a very unpleasant experience at the movie theater last night. Teens were talking loudly and texting on their phones all during the movie and were very disrespectful. What can we do to make sure our own children grow up to be more respectful?

A: There has been an erosion of civility in society, the Help for Families panel agrees. Kids see images of rudeness in movies, on TV and in books. However, your children will be most influenced by whatever you teach them.

“Kids learn what they live,” says panelist Denise Continenza. “As the adults in their family, make sure you are good role models and they will learn to abide by the same codes of conduct.”

However, also take into consideration that when kids get together in groups, sometimes they aren’t even aware they are being disrespectful.

“Teens are teens,” says panelist Joanne Nigito-Raftas. “When a group of teens is together and unsupervised they are not worrying about other people. You can do things to teach your own children to b…………… continues on Allentown Morning Call
