I'm 28, and very lazy. I always have been. I'm a stay home mom with two boys, 5 and 6 ½ years old. Most of my friends kind of don't want us visiting much anymore because I am just too tired or lazy to discipline my kids. I let them do just about anything they like. And they do! The only friend I still see regularly is one who has a similar parenting style. Whenever we visit each other, the kids are allowed to run amuk while we chat and have coffee and smoke together. Neither of our houses are clean, have nice things, and most things are broken, but neither of us really cares. My husband is a long-distance trucker and isn't home much, and doesn't really mind when he comes home and there are 2 new holes in the walls. My friend is a single mom, so it works out fine for her. We just don't want to have to yell at our kids all the time. It's sooooo much work, and it's a lot easier to just tune them out. Also, it's nice when you are somewhere else and other people step in and help control your kids. It's nice that other people help in the parenting. It sure makes life a bit quieter for a little while. I know I should be disciplining my kids a little more, but never have the energy or will power. Oh well.
