As a mother of three there was also an ultimatum. If they didn’t follow the house rules there would be consequences. I wasn’t as tough like my husband, but when they didn’t listen or follow the house rules they would be grounded.
On the other hand, as a grandma it’s a different story. We have the same house rules like when I was raising the kids, however when it comes to the grandkids I’m softer.
It’s funny how I can give them the ultimatum with a straight face and when they give me a pouty face I change my mind. They’re well-behaved, polite, respectful, and lovely. They don’t like helping with chores and when they visited they’re messy.
I always want to be the fun grandma as a result, I give the ultimatums to my kids. At this moment they’re living in my shoes also they’re pulling their hair.
