i hate doing it! i mean, "what the hell???" why don't they just do what you say. you say, "darlings would you like to watch tv for an hour? as a special treat, my love?" or something like that.... then they yell at you for no reason, when you are being a perfectly great parent, "i hate this channel, i hate you, you SUCK! you are horrible PUT MY SHOW ON!!! PUT IT ON NOW BIT@H!!!" then you say, "alright sweetheart, but don't you think you should speak to me in a little nicer tone? I want us all to be happy my love... hmmm?" then they look at you with beady wrathful eyes and whisper, in a very scary and creepy way i might add, " you change the channel right now or i will kill you with my thoughts and set our house on fire with my magic." then you do what they say cause you have to get to your bedroom quickly to change the pants you just pooed in and you didn't want your four year old to notice how frightened you are of them.
ok ok, this is obviously not really what happens on a day to day basis, but we as parents are to soft on our kids, they do something wrong and instead of a swat we give them a hug because they are only acting out for our love. now don't get me wrong, i'm all for timeout and NOT for beat downs but why does "Super Nanny" even exist? these people are absolutely ridiculous. Their kids are crappy kids because they are crappy parents. and these parents really act like the above said and let their kids act as said as well.
SO HERE IT IS:
if your kids slam the door to their bedroom or lock you out, TAKE THEIR DOOR AWAY
if they don't want to eat what you give them, DON'T FEED THEM TILL THEY EAT WHAT IS ON THEIR PLATE. THEY WILL NOT STARVE YOU IDIOTS!!!
if they acts like babies instead of acting their age, TAKE THEIR BIG KID BED AWAY AND REPLACE IT WITH A TODDLER MATTRESS UNTIL THEY GET THE POINT
if they don't listen or talk back to you, PUT THEM IN TIMEOUT, AT THE FIRST OFFENCE! IF YOU HAVE TO SAY IT TWICE YOU ARE WEAK AND NEED TO TAKE A PARENTING CLASS.
(ok, so i'm being a little harsh... this IS a blog after all... again, YOU IDIOTS!)
So the moral of the story is just be better parents than you are, and not pitiful excuses for sacks of crap, and your kids won't be crappy either.
