    Extreme Parenting Part 17 

    With the extreme cold outside across most of the nation parents have had to get creative about their kids activities.  This little girl wanted to go and play in the snow.  Her mom and dad decided to bring the snow inside.  I just love these parents.  LOVE THEM.

    Extreme Parenting Part 16 

    A mother in inner city Kansas City made a heart wrenching choice.  An elderly man who is confined to wheelchair was robbed in his home.  He answered the door and was confronted by young man pointing a gun to his head.  He made no effort to resist and the thugs entered his home and robbed him.

    This being the second time that this happened to him, he had set up a video camera.  The entire episode was caught on camera and released to the public.  A mom saw her son being the gang leader in this disgraceful event.  She not only confronted her son, she marched him down to the police department and turned him.

    It was the right thing to do, but that doesn’t mean it was easy.  It takes a special kind of person to realize that even though you are more than likely putting your child in a position to do time in prison allowing them to get away with that kind of behavior is worse.  Her son is 18 years old.  But obviously he has no respect for private property, he has no respect for the elderly, he has no respect for people who have served our country *the victim is a vet*, he has no respect for himself.  She took it into her own hands to say to her son that this behavior is not acceptable and will not be tolerated by her or by society.

    You also have to remember that cooperating with the police is not looked upon as something customary in the inner cities.  So it makes what she did even more noteworthy.  But I think this mom knew her child was out of control and fixing what is wrong is beyond her control.  I am also sure that she was worried he was on a path to end up dead, possibly in a shoot out with the police.

    Kudos to this mom for doing the right thing.  I am sure her heart is breaking.

    You can watch a news report here.

    Extreme Parenting Part 15 

    This comes from a listing on E-Bay.  A mother in Australia caught her daughter having a sleep-over with an older young man.  This coming shortly after buying her and girlfriends four tickets to a concert.  She decided to sell the tickets.  Here is the listing:

    “THIS AUCTION IS FOR ALL 4 ONE DIRECTION TICKETS IN SYDNEY OCTOBER 25th. You can thank my daughters self righteous and lippy attitude for their sale. See sweety? And you thought I was bluffing. I hope the scowl on your b—– little friends faces when you tell them that your dad and i revoked the gift we were giving you all reminds you that your PARENTS are the ones that deserve love and respect more than anyone. And your silly little pack mentality of taking your parents for fools is one sadly mistaken. Anyhow. Your loss someone else’s gain who deserves them! THE TICKETS ARE SEATED IN ROW O section 57. REMEMBER AUCTION IS FOR ALL 4 TICKETS and will be sent registered post.

    …OH YOUR FRIENDS THOUGHT THAT A FEW PRANKS CALLS WOULD PUT ME OFF SELLING THE GIFT WE BOUGHT FOR THEM for YOUR BIRTHDAY because YOU all LIED to us about sleep overs so you could hang like little trollops at an older guys HOUSE????? Pffft!! I find it HIGHLY amusing that you girls think you invented this stuff. Tricks like this on OUR parents is how HALF of you were conceived …..And why a lot of your friends DONT have an address to send that Fathers day card to!!! I’m not your friend. I’m your MOTHER. And I am here to give you the boundaries that YOU NEED to become a functional responsible adult. You may hate me now….. But I don’t care. Its my job to raise a responsible adult..not nuture bad habits in my teen age child.”

    Publically calling your child a trollop?  I would never do this to my child.  Never.

    This ad placed on Craigslist:

    Giving away my son’s PS3 (Woodbridge)
    He stole something, so as punishment this is being given away to the first person who can pick it up. Call Bianca at (XXX)XXX-XXXX

    I figure this can one of two ways.  He will never steal again, or he will go and steal a PS3.

    But good for this mom for trying to take something that means something from her son, we can hope that he learns the error of his ways and realizes that stealing is not the best of ideas.

      In a similar story, a Mom learned that her kid had been raggin` another kid who`s Parents couldn`t afford nice clothes. What did this concerned Mom do ? She went to a thrift store and bought crappy clothes and made her Son wear them to school. He caught some raggin` of his own and learned just how the kid he`d ragged really felt. It stopped. BTW, the Mom made here Son wear the clothes for a full week, just for good measure ! Heh !

    Extreme Parenting Part 11 

    I have not done one in a while and this really caught my attention.  A 10-year-old girl from Utah was bullying another child about how she dressed to the point that the little girl no longer wanted to attend school.  Her step mom had a little talk with her.  Apparently that didn’t work very well, so she took it one step further.

    One evening she drove to the local thrift store and bought her some clothes and shoes.  The next morning the little fashionista was told that was her wardrobe for the next few days.  In school she was ridiculed, laughed at, and whispered about.  The young girl came home to tell her stepmother that she now understands what she did was wrong.  Although she still had to wear another outfit the next day.

    Problem solved.

    Good for her.  When she realized that talking wasn’t enough, she decided that step daughter needed to shown the hard way how damaging this is to others.  This may have been the hard way to learn the lesson, but sometimes that is the only way to show your kids the lessons that must be learned to be a happy, healthy, and well-adjusted adult.

    I would do this in a heartbeat.

    Extreme Parenting Part 9 

    I want to start out by saying that I love ya and I’m not trying to embarrass you. Before you do anything else click the star in the upper right hand corner of internet explorer which is already pulled up and then click back on the icon to the right of the skype symbol in your toolbar to pull this page back up. —————————————> That history is the reason that you got that scamware and all the other crap on your computer. I want to tell you that it’s ok. Listen, I was 13 once too and it wasn’t so long ago that I don’t remember. I’m not mad or anything. It’s life and I did it too. I just want you to know that most of those sites are places that can and will ruin your computer. You were actually lucky that it only did what it did. There are viruses and other scamware that can completly ruin a computer and I can’t afford to buy you another 1800 dollar machine because you went to a site that fried it.

    There are sites that are completely safe and you can go on them and not have your computer turned into a piece of junk. You can go to these sites and not screw up your computer. Don’t click on any links taking you to other sites and please only go to these. Ninty percent of porn sites have crap that can brick a computer.

    [editor: links omitted]

    Listen, I won’t tell your mom and I’m not gonna make a big deal out of this. In fact I’m not gonna make any size deal out of it. If you don’t wanna talk about it that’s fine and I completely understand. I’ve been on this earth three times as long as you and there’s nothing you have done or will do that I haven’t done before. If you want to completely ignore this ever happened then I can and will do that too. Please don’t act awkward around me because of this. You have nothing to be embarrassed about. I just can’t have an 1800 dollar machine turned into a brick because you haven’t learned where to go on the internet. I’m not going to put a child lock on your computer or punish you in any way because as I said you did nothing wrong. I would like you to not be back here so much though. You literally spend all of your time back here. I’d like to see you more often. I like doing stuff with you and miss it.

    I love you and I couldn’t be more proud of you.

    Now, I would think that finding porn on your 13-year-old son’s computer would be a sticky thing to deal with.  But I don’t think that this is way to handle it.  At no time did he tell this child the huge difference between sex, love-making, and porn.  I understand not wanting to embarrass your child.  As a child I had a mother who embarrassed me often, so I know that isn’t effective parenting.  But I have to think that being more worried about a computer than your child’s well-being isn’t being a good parent either.  Now, even if you are one of those people who dismisses the evidence that porn is unhealthy to relationships, you must admit that it certainly would give a 13-year-old unrealistic expectations of what sex is.  That isn’t the real world.  Porn has no relationship to how real women view sex and it turns them into an object.

    Big time parent fail on this one.  Big time.  Since this is making the rounds on the internet, I would say the chances are good that Mom is going to find out.  Let us hope she does a better job of dealing with this than dad has.  Giving your 13-year-old safe porn sites?  Oh my.

        A Brit came to America and visited some farm folk who canned their extra veggies. When asked about it, the farmer explained, “we eat what we can and what we can`t, we can”.

        The Brit was so impressed that on arrival back in the old country, he coukln`t wait to tell how the American farmers “ate what they could and what that they couldn`t they could” !

    Extreme Parenting Part 5 

    I would not do this. This is a bridge to far for me. While I understand that her parents are trying to get her to see the seriousness of her actions, talking about your child’s sex life in public is just wrong.  Jasmine is 15 years old.

     
    • Ike 9:56 PM on 11/24/2012 Permalink | Reply

      And if she didn’t have a sex life, they wouldn’t be talking about it in public, now would they?? If she would obey their modest requirements like not inviting young men into her room at 3 AM – parents’ house and some strange teen boy inside at that hour? Wrong on several levels – and not give them and her grandparents a ration of ‘stuff’, then she wouldn’t be embarrassed in public, would she? She’s 15, not 21, not even 18. What method would you suggest to avoid the possible really really bad outcomes? What are they? (1) venereal diseases; (2) pregnancy; (3) having her parents robbed and murdered by the young ‘gentlemen’ to whom she opens the windows or doors; (4) miscellaneous bad things, like fires set by the child’s guests and like that.

    • Don 1:01 AM on 11/25/2012 Permalink | Reply

      I see nothing wrong with the way this was handled by this girl’s parents. Rewind back about 50 years and she would be BEGGING her parents to put a sign up instead of taking her back behind the woodshed.

      • just a conservative girl 8:50 AM on 11/25/2012 Permalink | Reply

        I think I would rather getting a whooping as opposed to having my sex life put on a sign. All this is going to do is make her angry and more likley to act out. Talking about stealing or lying is one thing, but your sex life is totally another.

    • Ike 6:43 PM on 11/25/2012 Permalink | Reply

      I think you’re probably right about the ‘unintended consequences’, that is, the girl will be angry and more likely to act out after being shamed. However, what do you bet that the parents would be charged with a felony of some description if they spanked or ‘whooped’ their child?? For an example, there is a judge here in Texas who was videoed (by his wife??) as he was spanking their then-15 year old daughter. The reason for the spanking wasn’t made clear, but the video was put on youtube and went explosive. The judge was suspended for nearly a year, IIRC, and was recently allowed back on the bench, but was instructed to recuse himself if he had to handle any cases involving parents spanking their children. Nearly lost his judicial position, even though Texas law does not make it a crime to spank your children. Message?? Parents who sincerely want to get their kids to stop doing dangerous and stupid things are in a quandry these days. Still, I stand by my initial comment. If the law and liberal bureaucrats didn’t view spanking the way they do, I’d recommend a spanking rather than the public humiliation, also.

        I saw that video. That wasn’t a spanking, it was a beating. He belonged in jail.

    This Indiana mom has a son who is in trouble with the law.  He was caught and brought into juvenile court.  The judge gave him some community service hours, but nothing else.  Mom is not happy with that punishment and feels it doesn’t go far enough in her helping her son understand the gravity of the choices he is making.

    She is hoping this may help.

    Extreme?

    She obviously loves her boy and wants what is best for his future.  He looks horrified.  I guess it depends on how far gone he is with his troubles.  But, she got him to do this, so I would say there is hope.  When you are trying to save a child from drugs, extreme is a relative word.

      I agree jacg, this boy is taking his Mom`s punishment, so there IS hope ! Many kids in this situation would never tolerate this embarrassment and would kill their parents, or have it done !

      I have already prayed for success in this venture ! Good luck Loving, Caring Mom ! Stand Strong !

      At this point, the average parent’s ears have turned completely numb and are unable to function properly.
