Do you ever have to bite your tongue when your kids do things contrary to how you did them as a mom/dad?

As long as no one is in real danger, bite away. There's more than one way to get the job done, that's for sure.

Some times I shake my head. My wife and I don't always agreed with the choices of my stepkids or my son... But we realize we were not perfect and wish them the best.

We can't believe our eyes sometimes. DH's son exercised no discipline over his kids yet they still turned out OK. Still it was very hard to be around his grandchildren when they were young as DH would complain in the car "i never would have let HIM treat his mother that way when he was growing up". sometimes we have to know that kids chose to raise their kids exactly opposite of how they were raised on purpose or to prove a point.

haha, that sound's just about the way I feel at times. For instance I would not leave t.v. on all day long allowing it to entertain my kids over me being with them parts of the day playing & teaching them educational things that was proper for their age at the time. Sometimes I feel like shaking sense in my daughter for the way she is leaving it up to her son to entertain himself by himself, seemingly his whole waking hours, as if he can completely teach himself & figure everything out for himself.

Every day...but the best thing to do is let them do it unless there is a physical danger to the child.
