    The benefits of my strict parenting style include 4 highly successful and wonderful loving children, 9 highly successful and wonderful loving grandchildren, and 2 soon to be highly successful and wonderful loving great-grandchildren.
    I am sure that through this same strict parenting effort, many highly successful and wonderful loving heirs will be forthcoming.
    Providing a solid strict parenting example through truthful praise and loving criticism properly builds the children’s talents and abilities.  This structure restricts damaging interference.  Through this positive parenting it promotes better academic and emotional outcomes for the child.
    Focus in my strict parenting effort is based on the needs of advancement for the child through supportive skill and knowledge training.  This includes continual interaction with the child concerning all academic, psyche, and social agendas.  Through this intimate transfer the child advances greatly as they energize self-motivation.

    My daughter is now 28, my son is 22. Compared to their peers, I was relatively strict on some issues. My wife and I provided a standard or code of conduct. If you provide guidelines and they are ignored or circumvented, there has to be consequences. None of our requirements were unreasonable, but I leave little latitude for dishonesty, disrespect or disobedience. They were praised when they did well, and corrected when they willfully disregarded the guidelines with which they were provided. They learned to be well-socialized, considerate, people with respect for limits on behavior. They learned respect for authority. Yes, they are bright and they were occasionally mischievous. My wife and I parented as a team, discussed many issues to remain consistent with each other and with our children. My wife was the nurturing parent, and I was the disciplinarian. Those roles came naturally; I have a military background, my wife is an excellent nurse (RN). I lived the conduct I expected and was not above the rules. Today, I am thankful for my children, close to them, and proud of them.
