I can't stand when children misbehave. I'm not a parent and I haven't been so I can't say how easy or hard it is (frankly having a child seems really hard). But does anyone here remember the days of "the look"? I remember, if I misbehaved in public I got "the look". If it continued I got taken aside and either sternly talked so or lightly swatted in the bathroom. If I got the stern talking to the car ride home was silent, I always assumed they were drudging up my punishment, then once we got home it was always some further reprimand.

I don't see why if your child is acting out you can't take them aside, either in the lobby of where you are or the bathroom, and tell them if you don't straighten out there will consequences.

 

 

 

 I feel like a kid. Pinch me. This kind of love certainly can't be real. Oh wait, it is :)

Dear BAB,

" (frankly having a child seems really hard). "

It is.

Disciplining the child is as tough on the parent as it is on the child.

Funny. My kids call it "dagger eyes." There is also the "teacher voice." Sometimes, it just springs out of me, even when I don't intend it to. As for, "Is parenting hard," yup. It's also wonderfully fulfilling (at least when it all turns out well!!)
