A CYNICAL LOOK AT THE DAILY GRIND

TOUGHING IT OUT

She's a little Tasmanian devil.


Well, not really. Granddaughter Chloe is going through her terrible twos and testing everything her mother says. A recent airplane trip to Florida had poor Darling agonizing just how tight she could get away with strapping in her little tonado with the seat belt so she wouldn't have to physically hold her down.

Unfortunately, mothers today are under constant scrutiny over whether to spank their child when they act out or to try sticking it out with tough love. A reader told me she finds it effective to settle down her son with a car ride. Here's how she said that ride usually goes.


Ha!

Obviously, these are not my pictures.

Its all part of being a parent, we have all gone through it, but nobody said it would be easy. Some kids are better than others. I wish we all had more patience in todays demanding world.

got a kick out of the screaming little boy clinging to the windshield wipers as the car was doing 99 mph. One of our grandsons would really love a ride like that and several of us have been tempted to give him such a ride.
Keep up the good work!
