Does the old school style of parenting and disciplining your kids still work in the new millennium?

 

Jada Pinkett Smith doesn’t think so.  As a matter of fact, she feels as though controlling kids and dictating what happens in their lives will make them resent the parents versus empower them. While attending a recent event, she revealed to PEOPLE magazine that she and Will Smith have chosen to develop a relationship with their kids that is more like a ‘partnership’ versus an ‘I’m your parent and what I say goes’ type of relationship.  She said,

I think that old school style of ‘I’m your parent and I’m greater than you’ doesn’t work. What I establish with my children is a partnership. I’m not necessarily dictating what is happening in their lives.

We communicate with our kids in a way that our message overpowers any other message that they get out there. We can’t control what our kids learn anymore. We have to inform them and have real conversations and [create] that foundation of them feeling assured in themselves.

I think for our children they feel like we really care and they come to us and go, ‘Mommy, I’m having this problem,’ and it’s like, ‘Okay, let’s figure this out together.’ And it empowers them.

Will and Jada catch a lot of flack for the way they raise their kids but that method may actually work for them, it doesn’t mean it will work for everyone else. It’s hard to keep up with these kids nowadays, especially with most of them having phones and signing up for profiles on social networks before they even reach the age of 12. As a parent, how do you even keep up?Scary!
