"step inside my office" he says.
All I gotta say, is of course that hoe is a ginger. But of course.
So it's Halloween week and starting last Monday, I had been telling my kids every single morning "only four more sleeps 'til you get to wear your Halloween costume to school!" because I remember being so excited to wake up and wear my costume to school when I was a kid. Turns out things are a little different these days, and schools apparently don't let kids wear their costumes to school for political reasons or some bananas.
Ok so my kids attend a private Christian school so I get it. At least they still say "under God" when saying the Pledge of Allegiance and use old-school words like "Indians" when explaining the meaning behind Thanksgiving. I think when my kids do attend public school (still not sure I can get behind that idea...I loathe public school for so many reasons) I'm going to tell them it's absolutely acceptable to yell out "under God!" when the phrase arrises. They may be a few beats behind at the finish but at least they won't be politically correct atheist robots.
And yes, I do make my kids play outside. I force them to play outside. They don't have a choice in the matter. And yes, I have locked the doors before so they couldn't get back in for a while. Why? Because they are kids. And boys. And they have mass amounts of energy they need to get out and I believe kids need to get wet dirty and exhausted before the end of each day.
I mean, Colt has built himself an entire "playhouse/office" out in the bushes. He can stay out there for hours and all I gotta do is walk out onto the deck and yell "Colt?" every now and then and see his little head pop up with a "yes?" and go back inside and read or clean or binge watch Dr. Phil for a bit until I do it again.
They are kids. The shouldn't be allowed back in the house until it's so dark they can't see their hand in front of them. I am very very old-school when it comes to raising my boys. They don't have any video games, no xboxes or handheld devices or anything electronic and I limit their TV and movie watching. It's the funniest thing...when you turn off the TV and leave them to their own devices, they will ratch on and on about how booooooooooooooored they are but after a while, being bored gets really boring and they find something constructive to do.
I'm old-school in the fact that my kids will respect authority, no matter who is in charge. They go to a friend's house with completely different rules? They will follow them. They don't like the grumpy old man at the grocery store who gets in their face and tells them to calm down and respect their mother? Too damn bad and high five gramps! I have zero problems with other adults and even strangers speaking sternly to my children if it's warranted. None. Don't like it? Behave.
One of my kids are sitting in the only remaining chair and an adult walks in? Get your ass up. Two adults are talking? Don't you dare interrupt. You disobey an order? Whack.
My kids are not special little snowflakes, and I would never treat them that way. I love my kids too much to not prepare them accordingly for the real world. And I've said it before and I'll say it again...even if we had millions, none of it would go to our kids. You want it? You go out and work for it.
Oh, and it hurts my feelings zero when they say I'm "mean" or that they wish they had another mom. I can't even believe some of the times I have heard a parent say it "hurts their feelings" when their child says something of that nature to them. Are you kidding me? We have weak children running around because there are too many weak parents.
Anyway. After that little rant.
This mom needs to find something better to do with her time. If she doesn't like the little slut clothes available for her daughter, don't buy them! Geezus. Does everything have to be made into a huge issue?!
And these parents should be locking their child up and throwing away the key, not suing the school for 3 million. That or just kick him out of the house. He's 17. Please. Just another example of weak parenting and placing the blame elsewhere.
Finally, she is what is wrong with the world today.
And yes I read the Daily Mail for all my news information.
Have a good day.
