Whenever we have a kid they are going to hate us because they are going to have to live by the 70s/80s standards we did - do your homework after school, go outside and play tag until you are tired, come eat dinner, and go to sleep. Simple!
My friends tease me that I'm going to be a "mean mommy" because my favorite word is going to be "no." Which is only partially true. I mean, obviously I want my kids to experience a lot of different things and I want to encourage indepence and individuality and all that, but I'm totally going to set some serious limits. All this computer/cell phone/ technology bullshit is going to be a NO. You are a child. Go play outside and use your imagination! Or read a book. Climb a tree. Do something creative! No sitting in front of the computer all day.
