What to do?

So lately have I been in this debate about whether am I doing good enough for my kids. I try to give them the best life possible just like my mom gave me. There was nothing my mom wouldn't do for me as long as I had good grades in school. By good grades, I mean if I was able to play sports. That meant I had to carry C's in all my classes.

“Hold on to the tiny moments and cherish the little snuggles…. They grow up so fast!”

Am I wrong for trying to instill this in my daughter? When she does her homework she is like a straight A student. So I started paying her based on her grades and that seemed to help a lot. Like most teenage girls who don't like money? I was never paid for good grades. But, I did get nice things as a teenager.

“Let me love you a little more before you’re not little anymore.”

You could call me spoiled but I had a dirt bike and a snowmobile. But I also worked a full-time job. I wasn't just allowed to sit around my house and play on the internet. That is the main problem I have with today's society. Kids just think we owe all this to them.

“Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.”

So when it comes to punishment I just take away my daughter's phone. I never knew how hard it is to deal with teenagers. I like to think I'm a cool parent but, this doesn't seem to be the case lately. Another thing I have learned is when you ground your kid it's like grounding yourself. I like to do things and go be a social butterfly. I feel like when you ground your child they should be able to do anything fun. So I have had a boring winter cause of this. I hope things turn around soon for the better cause I enjoy making memories with my daughter.
