Parenting for Dumbies
So, my neighbor tells me this the other day…
Her son came in from playing outside and was acting really down. He was clearly very upset about something. Thinking it was probably just a neighborhood football game gone sour, she asked him what he was so sad about.
“(Dalai) Thomas is grounded,” he says almost in tears.
“Oh, I’m sorry. Are you sad you can’t play with him?” his mom asked.
“No,” he explained.
“Its that (Dalai) Max told me for his punishment, Thomas has to either drink a cup of his own pee or get kicked in the nuts 10 times! What will he choose??!!”
And there you have it…my secret parenting technique has been outed. Thanks a lot, Maxie. (Just in case you are wondering, they pick the nut-kicking 8 out of 10 times)
