A responsible parent

heard about that on the news yesterday, good for her.
Yeah, when I heard this a couple days ago, I was like right on. My wife and I catch so much grief from other parents around here about how strict we are with our son. I tell them that because of my being strict, my son will probably be the lawyer representing your whore trash daughter during her 10th child custody case.
We're mean because for some reason, I don't think a 12 year old needs a cell phone!
Good for her!
It's damn hard convincing them that, ain't it? 'Specially when so many other responsible parents give them out like candy.
This is the kind of thing my parents always threatened me with. They had me convinced that if they found me doing anything illegal they were going to call the cops. I was a very well behaved young man, at least until I left for college.
My dad would just beat the living sh*t out of me if I did something really stupid. Selling my car (that I bought) would just make it more work on the parents in the end. The constant threat or real, physical violence pretty much kept me in line.
Wow, talk about zero tollerance.
Personally, I would have taken a more leniant approach. Say, the car would be taken away through the winter, then periodic random checks, only to be sold if there was a strike 2.
Kids make mistakes. I know I appreciated my second chances.
Good for her for taking that stand though.
I believe the children are the future...
which is why we must stop them NOW.
Clutch. I used to get the belt if I did wrong.
Somehow it put me straight.
exactly! I did wrong I got whooped. So, I learned to either not do anything wrong, accept my punishments for my actions, or not get caught.
This was the KEY to my ninja-like capabilities.
I missed the KISS "UNmasked" tour at our local venue because I got caught smoking by my moms friend who ratted us out. My mom took me to the show and made me sell the tickets as punishment.
I still give her sh*t about it---but I don't smoke cigs either.
What I like about the parent is that she put only 2 conditions on the vehicle, no booze, and keep it locked. The kid busted the first one, no booze, so the car got sold. Good for her that she stuck to her guns. I also like how she has had 0 (zero) calls telling her she was a bad parent.
If you don't follow the rules you set as a parent, how can you expect your kid to follow them?
