Just recently, my 18 year od daugter asked if she could kneel in silence to my husband and I for 15 minutes after dinner as a sign of respect. I was very plesantly surprised and have both her and my 15 year old daughter do it together. Is this
A good idea, lucky your girls did it volentarily
A good idea, will be geting my children to do it
Too old fashioned
We have floor boards, we haven't yet (and the girls haven't asked for) but should a mat be provided
No, slight uncomfort shows a higher respect. Wooden boards should be used on carpet
No, they have it lucky, we had to kneel on rice in the old days for punishment
No, only if its more than 15 mins
Is 15 minutes a good amount of time. It seemed to go quickley last night

During the holidays, I have both my daughters doing an essay on history each day for 7 hrs split in half. Is this
Very good idea, they would be just hanging out and wasting time anyway
Good idea, my child/ren will be doing it
Bit tough, half that is ok
No, its the break
