As expected, different women took to the comment section to praise Linda and also dropped opinions and tips that worked for them.
Read some of the comments gathered below:
"LOVE this Linda."
"Well done mama."
"You seem to have so much in common with me as a mom, but I disagree with letting him have his way most of the time. I say no firmly when I have to, it's absolutely necessary cos it will come back to hunt you later if you don't."
"Yes, I believe in spanking children when talking is not having the desired effect on them. But it is also a fact that each child is created special. And they will test your limits when it comes to patience with various antics. Your instincts, experiences, and training you received as a growing child too will guide you to know when to draw the line."
"I said this exact same thing to a friend a few days ago. The way most of our parents raised us with shouting, spanking and humiliation caused all this mentally imbalanced people we see today. May God help us be better parents."
"There are no rules in raising children what works for you might not work for me so just do your own thing and I will also do mine."
