Do you give your children time to be kids or make them act older than they are?

Are we perfectionist by nature to our children? Often times my wife like things to be just so. This was a real point of contention with my wife, who could care more about such matters.

yes. childrens should be given time to be kids.All of us acquire knowledge from childhood only. so kids can gather knownledge only by their activities as kids. we can play the role of a guide.It is the nature of ladies to expect per fection. there is nothing wrong in it. Both to take equal care without confrontation

Contrary to popular belief I am not guilty of this, I simply have treated my sons with more respect and if they were a bit older than they really were and are and in return they have matured a lot faster then most kids do and are very well behaved and do not partake in certain acts that most children do, and I think it is nice that things have worked out this way but it did not force it upon them and they quite like things the way they are and I would never think of changing a thing.

This is just my belief. I have raised 3 children.I have found that showing a child how to do things is a necessity. But then allowing them to do it the way they want as long as the desired end is achieved is sometimes the way to go. I have found that many times things got done better that way.All children should have their playtime
