Hey PARENTS! Did they leave anything off this list?
How do you raise a functional kid? One who can take responsibility for his own mistakes?
You can stop doing everything for them.
Put these things to your NOT-To-Do-List:
1. Waking them up in the morning
You shouldn’t be coddling little Timmy when he’s in high school.
An alarm clock can wake him up just fine.
2. Making their breakfast and packing their lunch
Preparing their own lunch is a life skill.
Parents need to make sure that there’s good food available, and then step away.
It’ll do them good to learn that peanut butter and tuna don’t go well together.
3. Filling out their paperwork
All the school forms can be filled out by your teens.
After all, they need to learn that for government offices and job applications, right?
4. Delivering their forgotten items
If they forgot to pack it, don’t deliver it to them.
It’s called ‘natural consequences’.
5. Making their failure to plan your emergency
Just because they don’t plan ahead for their school projects, it doesn’t mean you need to run off to the store to buy a foam display board, a hot glue gun and a catalytic conveter the night before it’s due.
Just say ‘No’.
Encourage your kids to plan ahead and let you know about materials that are needed so you can pick them up when it fits with your schedule.
6. Doing all of their laundry
Laundry is a life skill that everyone will need to learn at some point.
Why not make them responsible for a load or two of their own?
7. Emailing and calling their teachers and coaches
If your teen whines about an ‘unfair’ teacher or coach, have them talk to the adult directly.
They’re going to have to learn how to do it sometime.
8. Meddling in their academics
There is an epidemic of ‘overparenting’ in America.
Let the kids earn their own grades.
Let them earn their own successes and learn from their failures.

ClashDaily.com’s, Editor-In-Chief, Doug Giles addresses our nation’s abysmal wussification in his NEW book …
The Effeminization Of The American Male
by Doug Giles
Doug Giles, best-selling author of Raising Righteous And Rowdy Girls and Editor-In-Chief of the mega-blog, ClashDaily.com, has just penned a book he guarantees will kick hipster males into the rarefied air of masculinity.
That is, if the man-child will put down his frappuccino; shut the hell up and listen and obey everything he instructs them to do in his timely and tornadic tome.
In The Effeminization Of The American Male, Giles takes ‘Crispin’ from the unaccomplished, prissy and dank corridors of ‘Wussville’ up the steep, treacherous and unforgiving trail that leads to ‘Mantown.’
“Secretly, everybody’s getting tired of political correctness, kissing up. That’s the kiss-ass generation we’re in right now. We’re really in a p*ssy generation.” – Clint Eastwood
This is definitely one of the most politically incorrect books to ever hit the market.
It will most certainly offend the entitled whiners, but it will also be a breath of fresh air to young males who wish to be men versus hipster dandies.
Doug Giles, Creator of ClashDaily.com and author of the #1 Amazon best-seller, The Effeminization Of The American Male, has created a coloring book just for the fragile little college snowflakes.
Check this out from Amazon.com’s product description …
