Hush, Parents!

I get it that today, openly suggesting to try disciplining a kid the old fashioned way makes a lot of people uneasy.
But now, shouting is off the list, too?

Nobody who’s right in their mind should scream at children regularly. But …

… once a year? Crazy!

I would think that if parents are only screaming at their kids once a year, then whatever discipline system the parents are using is working.

Cuz you’d figure that even the most well-behaved kids will screw up once a year.

Makes perfect sense. Most irresponsible parents let their kids run riot in the streets for 364 days a year.

The only time the kids stay home when they should is Christmas Day, which is when they receive their annual slapping. Suprise!
