How important is it to you that other people recognize that you r a good parent.
Very important. Because, it speaks about me as a parent in a society. My tricks work for my kid, if I whack my kid it works or threaten it works, others would definitely judge me as a bad parent. So I hide it from others pretend to be a patient and understanding mother. It gives me a joy to be a perfect parent among others. I am not a bad mother though.
