Hey, being the Nazi that I am, I appreciate the use of duct tape, staple guns, and similar paraphenelia.
Not that long ago, I was taking my 13 year-old and a couple of his friends to the skate park so they could skateboard...and one of the friends was forced to drag his little 5 year-old brother along. So, they're all sitting in the backseat of my car, I'm driving, and this little boy was driving me DINGY!!! He was loud, rude, obnoxious, and how anyone EVER tolerates behavior like this is beyond me...unfortunately, his parents have absolutely NO control or authority with any of their children, and they're practically allowed to hang from the ceiling fans naked. Anyway, I couldn't take much more of this little squirt in the backseat, and I finally pulled the car over. I put on my "teacher face" and turned on the "Nazi/Stalin teacher voice", and I said:
"I don't know what the rules are in your house are...but, I'm not your mother. If you do not sit quietly for the rest of this car ride, you'll find a sock stuffed in your mouth so fast, you won't even know it was coming. I would NOT push it any further, if I were you." This little kid's mouth about hit his knees! It was like this was the first time anyone had ever corrected him in his life! Needless to say, he was completely silent the rest of the way!!!!
