The Balance factor has again come to my mind. It may be any problem you face in your life, it is this balance factor which will help you to solve it without a compromise. If an approach is at any extremes, it will never survive the tides of change. Too strict or too lenient towards your employee will hamper the productivity. You can neither accept nor reject everything from your employer which will put you in depression or bring you a pink slip. You know the balance to handle your child. Unless it is a balanced approach, he/she will become notorious.
