I dont think I am strict, but I do expect a lot. I expect her to behave perfectly 99% of the time, and she does. I do tend to find though that if we relax for say the school holidays, she does tend to become rather cheeky and needs to be pulled back into line.
I have never smacked her and I have sent her to her room maybe 3 times in her life,so some would say I wasnt strict but the mums that know me think im too hard on her.Mistakes are not tolerated more than once. I do come down on her like a tonne of bricks if her school work isnt up to scratch or her room is a mess. It is not acceptable to me. I sit her down and we have a lengthy conversation about why it isnt good enough. I must bore her to death!
This sounds exactly like me, not so calm after the same talk about the same issue like ground hog day.
