Is there a book I should be reading on all of this?
It all seems fair to me, but not sure about the practice.
Searched both of my books by Dr Benjamin Spock and nothing.
I did send the teenager to Naval School,
Drills, sailing courses, inspections, boot cleaning.....
He now has more body piercing than a Tetley tea bag,
Drinks more alcohol than I do,
And is bunny hopping 24/7 with girlfriend.
I see the discipline wasn't wasted on him!
Beebs, you know your problem here, hindsight being of course 20/20.
The word NAVAL was where everything went all runny...
really thought a basic error like that was beneath you, you should know it's only a choice of pirbright or swinderby - Job Done!
before i start yes i have been to see a psychiatrist.
i still live at home but when my fokes move out of pad quaters i intend to make my room a home from home. if you are confused "i'm going to make my bed room into a barrick room" with shiney floor, bed blocks and all. (even the squeaky door)
oh ye the shrink did say i was just a bit very sad.
