Twitter Thread: Strict Parenting Sets Kids Up For Failure

It's not completely outside the ordinary to see people end up acting like little rascals in response to the airtight confines of strict parenting. There's something hardwired into so many of us that creates a situation where we find ourselves rebelling just for the sake of being defiant. So, you put a kid in an environment where they're regularly being told what they can't do, with little room being left for them to let their wings fly, and you've pretty much got a situation ripe for rule breaking behavior. Naturally, this Twitter thread about how strict parenting can have the capacity for setting kids up for failure later in life, made some waves on Twitter.

We all want to be seen as gracious, but what happens when the things were are given just suck? Sure, you don't want to destroy the confidence of a child, but also who gives someone terrible cake made by a child and expects them to like it? When is a gesture worth lying for?

Woman's Tired Of Neighbor's Screaming Children, Wants To Blast Music

This woman moved into a new home and after meeting her new neighbor and determining that there'd be some loud kids stirring up all kinds of noise, she let the mom know that she'd probably just proactively try to drown out that noise with some sweet tunes. Apparently, the mom didn't take too kindly too this. It could be viewed as a potentially tough call on whether or not the music blaster's in the wrong. On the one hand, nobody wants to hear a relentless onslaught of kids being crazy loud, but the music might also only make the situation that much worse.
