Saw this over on A Trainwreck in Maxwell
I would do the exact same thing. Of course, there are dozens of comments about how he has now bullied his kid, how shooting the laptop shows that he is an abusive dad, and (my personal favorite) how instead of publicly doing this he should have had a talk with her.
Of course, that ignores the fact that she publicly humiliated her parents with her childish BS.
Anyway, kudos to you sir for not putting up with the BS and give REAL repercussions for her actions.Tags: Parenting
… a friend of mine said that his job was driving him bananas and my wife and I both said “Did someone say ‘bananas’?”
Yeah, kids programing has taken over the DVR.
And apparently this blog too….
Hit the zoo yesterday with the wife and the offspring. The boy is growing in leaps and bounds and becoming quite determined when he sets his mind to something.
Yesterday morning we had him in his walker and he was trying to go through the doorway and get out of the bedroom where we were keeping him contained. To keep him in the room we had placed a floor fan in the doorway and had it on for circulation. Matthew came up to the fan, saw he couldn’t get around it and decided to ram it – and managed to move it about an inch.
He still wasn’t able to get out, so he backed up a bit and hit it again, which moved it a little further but still not enough that he could leave. So, he backed up about two feet, which made me think he was going to go some other direction. He wasn’t. He then moved as fast as he could and rammed the fan at full speed! At that point I decided to step in and pull him out of his walker before he got a really good run at it and broke the dang thing.
Anyway, we hit the zoo and went to the aquarium where this time Matthew stayed awake for the sharks. As you can see, he thought they were pretty cool
We also hit the jellyfish again. Quite a difference from the last time.
They grow too fast. Everyone told me that, but now I know for myself
I got sidetracked over to Joan Peterson’s blog because of Weerd’s recent post and while I was there asking “Baldr Odinson” if he was going to come back under his real name and like his own comment I noticed Joan’s rules for publishing comments.
