    Good manners of all kinds, respecting elders, parents, grandparents, listen and then doing the first time she is asked, I do not like temper tantrums. I am going to do what my mom did with me, when she starts to throw a tantrum she gets put in her room with the door closed until she stops, then she can come out o her room. Mom did this with me it took only 2 times. I did not like having to go to me room and be unhappy. No lying, stealing, cheatting. She will be taught values and morals and will be taught high standards are a must.

    Absolutely NO talking back when told no or told to do something, & if my child throws a temper tantrum because he didn’t get something you wants, I spank him. He did it once a year ago & after being punished he’s never done it again

    Good for you Valerie! I agree!

  18. No soda for any one under the age of 10. I am sorry but I was allowed soda as a child and it makes you have sugar rushes, teeth problem and helps you gain weight fast if you are not an active child.
