16. What kind of parent do you think you have been/will be?
I was easier-going with my children than mine ever were with me.  I also mellowed a lot in my 30s. It's a difficult task to find that line between disciplinarian and being mushy with them, especially lads. I got through by honing good negotiation skills and a black sense of humour. Prodigals 1 &  2 have now seemingly turned out ok though.  I would have liked to have had daughters too, but will settle for my granddaughter A and my niece K, who are wonderful.

I do subscribe to the cartoon, though - I usually find that preposterous threats worked.  The "touch-this-aga-and-I-will-knot-your-arms-behind-your-back" threat usually raised a smile from Ps 1 & 2, but they generally got the hint.
