i'm with mikey.
give her a good circle beatin' next time she acts up.
i qualify this by the fact that i raised four stepchildren with corporal punishment as a deterrent of the last resort. all four are productive members of society, out on their own, working for a living, one is in college, two are u.s. marines. about to be a grandfather for the second time, and the daughter (whose married to the father of her kids who does provide for them) told me the other day "thanks for being my dad. etc etc." made me proud. i did
do something right. my father in law, who once told me i was sick and needed medication,(well duh! i can see the prozac and xanax are working well for you...) never layed a hand on his kids, has a 31 y/o son still at home, on dope. i'll take my way.
agree that her mom needs a swift kick in the arse. and i think Bull is just the guy to give it to her.
