Lazy Discipline

My son knows how to push my buttons. He really does. 

I yell his middle name for effect, and then proceed with my tirade. "Go to your room. Now! Do not pass "Go", do not collect any money, and do not come out until you're ready to straighten up. Or until you turn 21. Whichever comes first."

Super Bowl Clean-up, Please!

Yes, we watched the Super Bowl, but we watched very few commercials. I was the only one who remained in the room at halftime and I busied myself with something else while I waited for it to be over. I didn't see all the garbage that was broadcasted, but I saw enough, and heard enough, to make me a very unhappy mama. 

I'm the type of person who would rather fight for something good, like football, than give it up to those who trash it. However, I won't do it at the expense of the innocence of my children. Skipping commercials and the raunchy halftime show works, but I think we can take it further. At the very least, we can email the offending retailers and let them know they won't have our business.

Another unhappy mama says it far better than I, so please read her post...and fight hard for the innocence of our little ones!
