Humorous Parenting

My husband has a plan.  When the boys are old enough to be out with friends or *gasp* on a date, we will give them a curfew.  When The Big Dog gives them a curfew, he's going to show them a picture them as a baby in the bath tub.  He wil tell them that if they are not home by the appointed time, this picture is going on the internet with emails to all their friends. 


Some call it creative parenting...I call it humorous parenting.


Now, here's the rest of the story.  Although at work, Big Dog is the go to guy.  He helps his staff and others with computer problems all the time.  At home, he needs help to turn on our PC.  This morning, his likeness, Big Mac, said, "Mommy, you know how Daddy says he's going to put our bath tub picture on the internet if we come home late when we're teenagers?  Well, I'm not too worried about it because Daddy doesn't even know how to get on the internet!"


My reply, "Yes, but Mommy will be helping him!"


That silenced him immediately.  Threat resolved...
