    Default What do you think of my "Rule of 8" parenting philosophy?

    I didn't like how strict my parents were, and I want to do better for my kids.

    I've thought about it for a while, and come up with the "rule of 8".

    i.e., they can start watching PG-13 movies at 5, R-rated movies and M-rated games at 9, smoking/vaping at 10, and drinking alcohol at 13

    Essentially, I'll let them do "age-restricted" things starting 8 years before the official age limit.

    This way, they will have it before their classmates, and thus be seen as "cool" and do well socially, and they will also trust me and not be resentful of strict parenting.

    But I will also make it clear to them that if they get in trouble, I will not come to bail them out, since with mature privilege comes mature responsibility.
