What real Moms did for their kids!
I had no idea written complaints or such could be so effective!!
This one really made me laugh!! http://www.parentingpress.com/t_040710.html
“Thank you for your input.” LOL
A friend stopped her ex-husbands sarcasm by saying, 'Sarcasm kills/destroys communication' or something like that (maybe it was 'effective communication'. It shut him right up, and he became nicer.
Funny thing is, I told her that (without any idea of her using it in talking to him!) & was really surprised she A) Remembered it & B) Used it with great success!!
Interestingly, there's help for parents with overly critical kids too!
Some good consequences for unhelpful talk & behaviour, LOL!!
Sane advice for when you wanna be nasty here too: http://www.beavercreek.k12.oh.us/fair/counselor/putdowns.htm
