How do parents who were mischievous themselves raise their kids?

I was a problem child due to being an only child to parents who did not get along. I basically grew up middle class (back when a middle-class family could actually live a good life), but spent most of my time alone. Both parents worked so I was a “Latch Key “ kid (before that title ever existed) at around 9 years old.

I brought up my 2 kids with both discipline and freedom. I did not spoil them but I also did not give them nothing. I also did most of this after I got them back due to a divorce when they were 15 and 9.
