Last night my neighbour popped around asking for advice about her 12 year old lad who is a bit of a tearaway. In my view heâs not a bad lad he just needs a bit of discipline and some direction in life. Unfortunately she is a single parent and also a bit of a dappy hippy chick! I have already suggested to her that young Jamie should join the Army Cadets, which I might add he is really keen to do. Now this suggestion went down like a lead balloon as she thinks this will encourage him to be an aggressive thug! I pointed out to her that I was once a cadet and that I never became an aggressive thug (a cross dressing scaley maybe, but that another story.) She has now told him that she wants him to join the Boys Brigade â¦.WTF! He has gone completely ape at this idea, as he doesnât want to look âlike a Thunderbird puppetâ his own words. I need a way to persuade her against this. Ideas please? Hippyâs cant live with them â¦..Cant shoot them!
