MetroDad has an awesome post up about how we’re becoming a nation of wimps. Actually he uses a better and stronger word, but I agree with what he says about raising kids today. My kids are never allowed to hit… first, but they are allowed to hit back. “And don’t just smack,” I tell them, “knock ’em on their -.” I’d tell you why, but MetroDad does it better.
Use your words. If that doesn’t work, knock the shit out of ’em.
