Final Showdown: Strict Vs. Permissive.
"Strict Parenting Controversy." YouTube. YouTube, 03 Dec. 2012. Web. 7 Apr. 2014.
This to me is the perfect article. It had a great balance of everything! The Pisciones came off a little extreme at first, but quickly got rid of that title when they discussed how important their child's creativity is. The Pisciones expressed their need to balance free time in with the structure, which was very reasonable. All in all, these parents seem to be example A of modern day parenting. However, it would be nice to do a follow-up interview once the kids are older, to see how these parents adjusted. The biggest problem is when parents begin to prioritize academics more and more, smashing the child's creativity. But there are two sides to every story; and parents who offer no structure at all could cause a very unintelligent and non-progressing individual. This is why Linda and the Pisciones set a very good example for what this generation's parenting should be.
