Being bad cop is never fun, but as any mom knows, sometimes, a little tough love is the only way to teach your youngters those all too important valuable life lessons.
In this installment of Truth Bomb Mom, Kristina Kuzmic explains why it’s better to sometimes play the bad guy than to constantly coddle your children.
She begins, “I know I’m not the only one with at least one kid who when told to do something tries to pull the whole, ‘Well, so and so’s mom doesn’t make him do any chores or have any responsibilities so why can’t you be more like her?” She continues, “Then I end up being like the mean mom, which is fine, I can take it, I’m a big girl.”
Kuzmic isn’t bothered by adopting the role of the “Mean Mom” once in a while because she believes it is helping building her kids’ character. This mom says, “Sometimes we do things that we don’t feel like doing and we suck it up and we do them anyway because that’s real life kid. Because we choose to be decent, responsible people instead of entitled whiny brats.”
According to Kuzmic, at a certain point, your little baby isn’t going to be so little anymore, and your behavior towards them is going to have to evolve. “Sometimes, I’m the bad guy because I don’t give my kids every little thing they want and they have responsibility,” says this mom.
As always, Kuzmic keeps it real, “Now, let’s be honest, will cooking with my kid make for a greater mess? Yes, Oh yes. But, it will also make for a greater human.”
