*humorous reference to ****ism made, parenting practice mentioned
Yeah, for the record I don't call myself an anything parent. But in answering the debate question, if I had to chose one or the other, I would be machiavellian as per this article, its not a parenting label I've ever heard before or used or anything. I've gotten in big trouble on here for my dislike of parenting labels and the way I think that they are generally for insecure parents. FTR I hardly think handing each kid $10 to get through Target is Machiavellian (thats freaking 40 bucks from the get go!!!). If it is I'm more of a Hiltlerian parent, hahahaha. Life is easy if the kids know that they aren't at stores to get things for themselves :) Having three kids close together has made making and sticking to rules and boundaries super easy as it was simple survival.
