Tread a mid-way path to teach the kids self-restraint.
Mostly B’s: You are a dominant mother, who likes to keep things under control. However, avoid being too harsh on the kids on making minor mistakes. Kids need to be trained before punishing, as they hardly know the difference between right and wrong. It’s your job to make them understand and follow the rules.
Mostly C’s: You are a doting mother, who likes to indulge the kids as well as discipline them. You understand the feelings of your children and you know how to make them feel better during an outburst. Give yourself a pat on the back as you have been doing a good job. Keep it up!
