Hey, over at GNMParents (now ForeverParenting) we’re talking about your biggest parenting pet peeves. Won’t you join in and tell me yours?

Hubby’s pet peeve is pretty similar to mine. “When it’s bedtime, it’s bedtime. Go to bed, boys!!!”

Earnest Parenting: help for parents who want their children to go to bed.

    I guess my mom’s biggest parenting peeve is our lack of initiative to clean the house. Haha! She always gets pissed whenever she comes home and the house is a total wreck because of us. But hey, I do help her from time to time. I can’t help her all the time though…

    Haha! I suddenly remember my dad and mom when they are making me go to sleep already. I used to just literally go to bed. It’s really hard to go to sleep when you’re not yet sleepy, but I totally understand why parents want their children to go to bed on time. Good sleeping habit is really important especially when they are already studying.

    My kids fall asleep very well. Right now my son is asking the same question in many different ways. Its really annoying.

    Brochure printing, I would get mad too if I left a clean house and came home to a wreck. There’s only so much followup I’m going to do. If you make a mess, clean it up! 🙂

    Lisa, thanks for the tweet!

    Print Brochures, agreed. Bedtime is important, if only for the peace and quiet it brings to the home.

    Lucy, my younger boys have been good at going to bed until recently when they discovered how much fun it is to stay up and chat and laugh and yell and play. Sigh. It was great while the peace lasted.
