No matter what anyone tries to tell you, there’s no absolute right or wrong way to be a parent. Every parent is different, every kid is different and part of being a good parent is learning as you go and figuring out how best to earn your child’s trust while teaching them how not to be little monsters.

That being said, this parent is definitely doing it right.
