I was ROTFL when I saw this on Ton’s blog. She allowed me to post it for your enjoyment. Please visit her blog and say, “Hi.”
Having two teenagers in the house at one time might, just might drive me batty. I am a veteran homeschooling mom of 11 yrs., yet my son spells shoes like this, shoos. Dear Lord have mercy on my soul.
Then my daughter who can be temperamental at a moments notice tells me today that she was spending time with God instead of doing her math. I know you would think I would be happy, but I know her better…. She played the God Card. She did. So because she didn’t wake up early we didn’t get to go shopping. Oh the horror.
Lately they have been telling me things like: “Mom, no other homeschooled kid I know had to read War and Peace! Really mom!”
“Mom, everyone thinks you put me on a glass shelf!”
“Oh, mother, I really don’t know how you got along without us. Really what did you do before we were born?”
“No other parents make their kids do that!”
The list could go on and on and on. But I digress for you. 🙂 So here is my plan, to write a letter to the “Imaginary Permissive Parents.”
Dear Permissive Parents,
My children hound me day and night because of you! Why do you have to be so nice! My children tell me that I am the ONLY parent that makes them do their chores, read books, and finish their homework. Is this true? Do you also let them watch all the TV when they want or play video games till 3AM? Say it isn’t so. I bet you let them eat anything their little heart desires. Unlike me, who is concerned for their physical, emotional, and spiritual health. Well I am sure you can understand the dilemma I am in, my kids think that I am just so mean. What is this mean mom to do?
