Interesting Year For Parenting Old School

I like to look back every once in a while and check out which of my blog post have been most popular over the year and this has been a relatively good year for Parenting Old School. This blog has been around in various forms over the past few years but has only existed as Parenting Old […]

Parenting in Shades of Grey

As you already know, I am a Yes or No parent. Black and White, there is no middle ground or “shades of grey“. Some call it simplistic and some people call it archaic but I simply call it sensible. If executed properly, this type of parenting makes for a simple family dynamic without all the rigmarole that […]

Why Is My Teen So Trashy?

I was standing in the grocery checkout the other day and spotted The Macleans Magazine with a  cover story called Outraged Moms & Trashy Daughters. Upon seeing this, I knew in an instant what my next blog post was about. The long and the short of the article is that: There seems to be a growing gap between today’s […]

The Ethical Child

Ethics… Exciting stuff I know but it is something we don’t really think about much any more. It seems to be lost on most people and if you were to ask the average person to define ethics, they would have difficulty doing it. At one time ethics guided our daily lives, they were the foundation […]

Modern Parent = Neurotic Child

I love this! Yet another piece of evidence to support the Old School Parenting philosophy. A recent study, presented on May 29 at the Association of Psychological Science Convention in Boston, is raising the alarm about helicopter parenting and how it is producing neurotic children. While it is refreshing to see that this issue is […]

Hyper Parents & Coddled Children

Hyper Parents & Coddled Children finally aired this week and I was not disappointed. I have been waiting for this documentary for quite some time and it is finally here. CBC or the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation does some fine work and this documentary is no exception in its look at how we parent or “over” […]

Just Say No (Part 5)

As I have said a number of times in my Just Say No series, this philosophy is not about depriving your child of their wants, needs or opportunities.  Just Say No is more about teaching a child about the realities of life. Just Say No is about teaching your child that in life there are boundaries which they must […]

Just Say No… Some Context. (Part 2)

When I first came up with the idea for this blog, I tried to think of a way to present it in a manner that wouldn’t offend those parents who believe that every child has the right to rule the roost. I wanted to reach out in a kind and gentle manner so as not […]

Just Say NO!

“No!” I love this word; it is so simple yet powerful. It can bring a child to tears but it can also save a life. It is the cornerstone of good parenting, a starting point, a base line, a default position from which you dictate how your child will grow into a useful and competent […]

The Pampered Child – Formerly Known As "Spoild Rotten Little Brat"

Children today are without question a privileged lot. They have access to more services, more products, more activities and more attention from the adults in their life than we ever did.  Society has unwittingly or perhaps wittingly created a world where the wants of our children supersede all else. The scary thing is that if […]
