Do you call your kids by both first and middle name when they're in trouble?

Lol, I always remember my dad doing this when he was "serious", haha. Did anyone else's parents do that?

  • Yes I do and then I hope I got the right name. Nothing like yelling out a name and it isn`t even that child? My Mother did that and my Grandmother did that and I said I would NEVER do that. How come they don't no my name??
