    My father was a disciplinarian that we were afraid of him. My mother was understanding with us. Given the 2 parents, there seemed to be a balance in our home when we were young. But I think the balance should be on both of them - not too strict but sometimes lax. That way, the child can be a ease with both parents. It is not easy but it can be done.

    Yes, I agree, there should really be a balance and there is one parent that's supposed to discipline and be stern with the child and another one to be lax with and be friends with also.
