I am a mean Mom.
I make my kids make their beds. I make them brush their teeth. I make them put their toys away, or I take them away. I make my kids eat what they're given. My kids don't get to argue with me or complain about what I prepare for meals ... "get what you get and you don't throw a fit!" My kids are not allowed to waste food.
If my kids break it, they have to work off to pay to fix it. My children will learn the value of a dollar and how to be careful and not wasteful.
