Naughty mom (or dad) behavior
 
Time for true confessions here - name a time when you did something
that is not on the list of Best Practices as a parent.

Here's one of mine - drinking a Bud out of a paper bag in the parking
lot during my daughter's trombone lesson. It was just one of those
days, and it did taste so very good.

Warm Regards,

Claire

Bud? tasted good? it must have been a very hot day & a very
cold Bud, because Bud is pretty tasteless "beer".
anyway, other than hiding the beer in a bag (i'd hide Bud fer
sure!), why is this a 'bad parenting moment"? aren't parents
allowed a drink of beer?

That's terrible. I have pictures of Whino in the park in my head
right now. Not trying to judge but that is the picture I'm getting.
Did anyone see you. If they did they must have thought you had a
serious drinking problem.

My son had just started school and there were some kids who would take
his supplies, so I told him, if anyone takes something of yours-you
take something of theirs and then you tell your teacher why you did
what you did.

I also told him if it escalated and they put their hands on him to do
the same in return UNLESS IT WAS A GIRL! He was not to start anything
but he was not to back down either. So instead of him hitting a girl
he called her a bitch because she wanted to push him (turns out she
liked him). Of course he got in trouble in and out of school and I
had to re-evaluate what I said because kids listen TO EVERYTHING!!!!
I FELT SOOOOOO BAD!!!!

I live in SE Louisiana, and down here the only problem with that story is
the "hide it in a paper bag" part. Public beer drinking is pretty common
down here.

When my daughter went into Jr. High, she was being intimidated by a bully
(another girl). Threatening to beat her up, etc. I told her to call the
bully on it. "Fine, get off at my bus stop and we'll settle this right
now."

Gulp. Very stupid of me. Fortunately, it worked, and the bully backed off.
They became friends, even.
