out crazy the crazy

I know you've heard it said before..."when all else fails...out crazy the crazy."

If they won't do their homework...shrug your shoulders and say "okay."  And mean it.  In fact, tear up all their previous work and toss their curriculum.

When they complain about you following through with the consequence they were warned about...let's say taking away an ipod for a period of time...fill the sink up with water and slowly slip the ipod into it while they are watching and huffing and puffing.

If they shout "EFFFFFFFU!!!!!!!!!!!That's bullsh*t!!!" in your direction ....shout back.  "Are you effin kidding me???!!!!! Is that all you've effin got??!!!!?????  That's  so effin dumb!!  What a dumb a** lame a** son of a beotch sh*thead a** wipe  mothereffing thing to say!!!!

When they yell in public....yell louder.  In public.

When they throw a tantrum....throw a bigger one.  Stomp louder.  Slam harder.

If they throw something.  Throw more things.

You might get some stares.  You might be misunderstood.  

You might lose your reputation.... or gain one.

How far are you willing to go so that your child comes face to face with reality?   With themselves.

Looking in a mirror.  Not always an easy thing to do.

When all else fails...out crazy the crazy.  It just might be the most loving thing you can do.

reminds me of a post from years back.....

*stay safe at all times

*  and a reminder...I've been at this for 13 years now...(when all else fails)
