Parenting would be a whole lot easier if children came with a manual. I sincerely doubt that any child chooses to ignore their parents, or forget instructions that were given to them.
Ignoring them simply encourages your child to create bigger and better ones. My advice to parents, know that there are options out there. Our first strategy is chiropractic care. Follow this series to see how it goes.
