I will not allow my boys to have tvs or games consoles in there rooms till they are at secondary school - at least! And they are not having a mobile phone till then either, n thats only so I can keep tabs on them - if they answer me!
The amount of friends my boys have tvs/dvds players/games consoles/laptops & mobile phones, in there bedrooms! Is horrendous, n some of these kids are as young as 5 n old as 9.
Kids today are made to grow up far to quickly n there is to much out there for them, no wonder they become fed up as teenagers!

And I had my son whom is 5 very upset the other day, cos a 7 year old girl - fully made him believe there is no Santa!

And YES! Bring back National Service!

My daughter didn't have a mobile until she was 13 but she did have a TV and a games console at a much earlier age though.

I was strict on what she was allowed to watch and listen to though.

I think anything in moderation is fine for children and privileges should be earnt, my children have always had to be tidy and respect not only their own property but that of mine too. Mine are far from perfect and as I said earlier maybe National service would do some of them good. There is no easy answer and we all do our best by our children and what suits one won't suit all but hopefully we'll be graced with level headed young people of the future. x
IVA final payment left the bank on the 26th January 2013...looking forward to a debt free future.

We have a wii in our house but it is attached to the tv in the living room, and when the kids use it, we are normally all playing together as a family. it stops just one child sitting on it all day and night. x
Its now time to start living and to make some some wonderful memories!

Our Wii is attached to the main TV as well, mostly because there isn't room in either our bedroom or daughter's room for it to go! Plus if I was on the Wii fit it will be like listening to a herd of elephants trying to crash through the ceiling!

Lesley I agree with you about maybe some time in the army would sort out some people. I did just under 4 years in the RAF and boy did I need it. I was a real tomboy with no respect for other people’s feelings. I thought rules were there to be broken and boy I broke them all. The first 6 weeks was so hard but I eventually got the message and began to enjoy the experience. I must say that my kids are very good and from a very early age people have commented on how well behaved they are and how nice their manners are.

I was a bit of a tomboy, rebelled against my parents somewhat. I wanted to join the RAF but my mother refused to sign the forms. I became a police cadet, and then a police officer and I'm now a civilian worker for the police. The discipline certainly did me good.

My daughter has her faults but she is unfailingly polite and her manners have always been impeccable.

My Mum used to say "wait until your father gets home"...don't know why because Dad was really soft. He used to wink and say if you're naughty you'll miss the football, knowing full well my Mum loved it when Dad took all 5 of us to football [:D]

I have to say, I have never smacked my girls, I really don't agree with it.

I've never had a problem with it in the right circumstances. It certainly did me no harm.

I really think a smack (or at least the fear of it) would do a lot of the children of today a world of good. Many of them have no respect for anyone or anything because there aren't disciplined in any way, shape or form.

I was smacked, but only if I'd done something really wrong, and half the time the fear of the punishment was enough to stop me doing something wrong!

Our punishments were not good at all, and I mean not right. Cane, strap, slipper and carrying the coal LOL. We lived in fear of our parents.

My daughter gets the very rare smacked bottom if she has done something so terrible, like when she was smaller she ran into the road, but to be honest I can't even remember the last time. She's actually a good girl, just wish she'd listen better, but then she gets that from her dad.

But you were invisible Animaleyes!

When I was growing up we had an Old English Sheepdog called Jasper. If I did something wrong and my mum was shouting at me he would back me into a corner and stand between us to protect me. If my mum then tried to reach over him to smack me he would get her wrist in his mouth and hold on - he never used bit, he just held until she calmed down.
