Granted... OHHH... how the sympathy i have for you is so unbelievable...!
A couple of days ago there was a post here about a parent who wanted to "Punt"... i love this American expression : Ohhhh how i wanted to "punt" my
kid... as i think every parent secretly wishes (but would never do so..."normally")
When they are at a certain age and stage in their and especially OUR lives of course they can be DORKS as sometimes we can be too... for not
understanding them !...
BUT... then again, nothing that a good detailed explanation (for/against whatever issue crops up) would not resolve an issue... otherwise a good scut
(not a baseball bat with a rusty nail added) off the back of the head (depending on age of course!) followed by an explanation as to why you scutted
him/her off the back of the head can sometimes sort an issue out when our kids have pushed it too far... (in my opinion!?)
I have only raised my hand once to my 2 kids (one is now 22 the other 14)... the ONLY time i raised my hand was when one of my kids was 5 and was
going through the phase of NO... i warned and warned and warned and explained that if he continued to say no that he would get a spank on the bum if
After 2 weeks continually saying NO, he said it for the last time... he got his arse smacked for every single step leading up to his bedroom (24 steps
but he was wearing a nappy)... And for all you anti bum smacking people out there... get real!!!
Just don't let her/him get the better of you... you are the person who is educating your child (i guess that she/he is an only child?)... If that's
the case... beware of the Child /King/Queen as they say over here in France.... Or spoilt child if you wish?...
He might be a dork right now, but you will notice after a couple of years or two... or 3 or maybe 15...
that he/she will one day turn around to
you and say...
"Mum, thanks for calling me a Dork..." I love you...
