"Put mom in her place"
"Keep mom on a leash"
"Train mom to..."
At what point is it his job to:
Tell his wife those are rude and derogatory ways to speak about the mother of his kids and he won't tolerate it?
She isn't a dog, she's a human. A human he shares a child with.
And that her place isn't where SM thinks it is?
Not everyone uses these terms, I realize that, but there is one here today that used the putting mom in her place thing and I've seen the leash and train one in various places as well.
