    Nowadays, unfortunately, some people give up and just give their child whatever. It’s hard to deal with screaming children and it’s easier to just give in. But this can very draining emotionally and financially when people let their children control them. What’s worse is that the child learns to always try to get their way and is not satisfied until they do.

    A better way is to teach them to accept disappointment. When we don’t give in to the tantrum, we teach them it doesn’t work. It eventually goes away. They learn that things don’t always go their way and that’s okay. They learn right from wrong, and what they can and can’t do.

    It’s different for teens though. While toddlers need a lot of supervision, teens need more space. Of course, teens need structure too, but if you are breathing down their neck, they are going to do the opposite of what you want because they want to be independent. Teens need a balance of both structure and space, so they know what to do, but can still express themself.

    Children need petch when appropriate.

    I didn’t say so, Dovid HaMelech did. And the Mechaber paskened as such.
