I have tried so hard not to be my father or my mother for that matter. This was actually important to me when my wife & I decided to start a family. But my wife was on the same page that I was when it came to raising kids. This was wonderful because I just didn’t want to repeat the way I was brought up. My parents raised me with fear, guilt & a bit of intimidation. I was seriously afraid of my dad until I was an adult. And honestly, both my parents are charming people. They just thought that super strict parenting was the way to go. Like I was terrified to even touch the Heating plus A/C control unit. My dad was actually strict when it came to the heating & cooling in the house. This was mainly due to him trying to spend the actually least amount of cash on heating & cooling. So it’s sort of unusual that my kids did nothing however complain about the control unit setting. I’m ecstatic the kids don’t fear me but, I could rest with a bit more deference perhaps. Reminding them that I paid the bills & the Heating plus A/C heating & cooling bills as well didn’t actually help either. But I ended all those complaints by calling the Heating plus A/C business. They sent out an Heating plus A/C professional who changed our Heating plus A/C proposal over to a zone controlled Heating plus A/C environment. Now, there are 5 independent control units throughout the house. So pretty much everyone can now have the exact heating & cooling comfort they desire. Not the way my dad would have solved it however that’s okay with me too.
