When I was younger I had more respect for my elders

Um, mom you think I can go out tonight?
Um, no. Since you stayed home sick from school I assume you're too sick to go out.
Ok, yeah. I'll just stay home and be a house boy. Like all the loser guys.
You mean the ones who don't have a job and ask their moms for money to take their girlfriends out on dates?
Yay, sarcasm.

LOL @ your conversation!

I believe respect starts at home. If parents don't teach their children the value of respect, parents should not expect them to have it automatically engrained into them. I'm glad you put your foot down. Other kids would get away with that!

Hi, Bon:

It's been a while since I stopped by your blog. You've been very busy. I haven't updated my blog in a while. Tsk! Tsk!

It was nice chatting with you on FB. March is just around the corner, eh? :)

Nice. The cutting edge of sarcasm trumps the blunt end of a stick any day.

Bon said...

Ouch me or ouch Ton? Lol, tough love is not easy. He's right handed, I only have one out of four who is ambidextrous, Peyton.

I can relate. This weekend my dd (14 yo) wanted to go to a co-ed sleepover birthday party at a hotel.

Like I would ever agree to that. (The birthday celebrant is over 18, in college, so I understand her freedom to do this. But why invite high school kids?)

I did call the "chaperones" because dd was having fits-I'm going to ruin her social life, etc. They refused to even answer simple questions like-are you going to get drunk? will you be watching my daughter to make sure nothing happens? etc.

The answer to every question was "It's up to you whether you'll let your daughter come."

It's up to me. Easy answer-No. Not even the party, much less the sleepover.

She went to the movies with her cousin. No problem. Social life in tact.
