PET PEEVE #13


Children will always do naughty things. Mine included. Can't you just see that glimmer of evil in Tori's eyes? That's what parents are for. We are here to guide and assist our kids in making the right decisions. Our job is to teach manners, respect and the value of goodness. That said, it leaves me to my next peeve............

LISTEN UP PARENTS! STOP THINKING YOUR CHILDREN ARE PERFECT AND CAN DO NO WRONG. NOT EVERYTHING THEY DO IN LIFE IS "CUTE". STEP UP TO THE PLATE AND TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR THEIR BEHAVIORS BEFORE I BEAT THE LIVING CRAP OUT OF THEM!

For some reason, here Way Down In Mayberry, many parents are under the assumption that they are supposed to be their child's "friend". I have never understood this concept. I also have never been in favor of the "touchy/feely wounded inner child" hoo-ha that I hear parents talking about in conversations.

Bubby and I have taken this parenting-other-children's-kids in to our own hands. We don't wait to find the parent or make a nice little phone call hours later. We threaten the child on the spot with their lives.....broken fingers, removed tongues.....whatever.

It's obvious that the little Johnny's and Suzie's haven't been running home and crying to their Mom and Dad about it because we haven't received any phone calls. Then again, we haven't had a lot of children knocking on the door and wanting to play.

Bubby and I now have a reputation in the neighborhood to live up to. The scary parents that live in the scary house with the big scary dogs barking out back. And parents, if you want your child to play with my children........better buy a lot of those "tough love" parenting books or better yet, pay a gazillion dollars for a new life coach. This sh*t ain't flying.
