How To Teach Your Child A Lifelong Lesson....
One of my favorite things I have from my mom is a diary she kept for a while when I was about 3 years old. I love looking through it and reading some of the things I did as a child that either made Mom and Dad smile, or absolutely frustrated them. I really like the entries where I made Michael mad! In one of the entries, Michael came running to Mom crying because I had apparently hit him in the head with a hammer (it probably explains why he is like he is to this day). Well, I must say, after having grown up with him....he probably deserved it and I was most likely in the right when I hit him....but Mom wanted to teach me a lesson--We don't hit people with hammers! In order to teach me the lesson, she hit me in the head with the hammer! That is documented child abuse!! I still laugh about it to this day....but I must say, I don't hit people with hammers, so I must have learned my lesson!
