This weekend I was very,very angry to hear that my sister said something very unkind and untrue to my dad.
My dad was a stressed out construction worker. He provided for 8 children of his own and 6 of his brother's. He owned his own business, which was a serious drain on him. He lost his temper with us kids on occassion, and did spank us. Our other main punishment was like time out, but before time out. He would have us kneel in the corner for however long until we were willing to apologise for whatever we did. I don't agree with some of the ways he's disceplined us, and won't use them on my kids, but it was the only way he knew. His dad dies when he was 7 and he had to role model to follow except drunk uncles. He never touched a drop, and was always a charitable model of a man to us.
Last weekend, my sister's kids were acting like they usually do, loud, rude, obnoxious. ect. My dad, said "Why don't you parent your kids? Like we parented you? Kids need rules to follow!" My sister's reply? " Well, then I'd be in JAIL and what good would that do me?!" Stomp away, slam doors, not talk to anyone for a few days. Just like whenever you said anything to her when she was a teenager, only now she is 30 and the mother of 3 unruly kids. I seriously want to SLAP her right now......
