Our poor Beth

We’re not perfect parents, but I like to think we’re at least average. Beth is on the cusp of that time when parents become ogres with wallets. It’s not really like that here, but what fun is a blog if I can’t exaggerate once and a while.

There’s a punishment that’s particularly effective with Beth, owing to her love of the computer. She gets that from her father’s side of the family. It involves taking away electronics privileges. When we have to exercise the nuclear option you’d think she was being sent away for life in prison.

Here’s Beth trying her hand a criminal law.

“Mom, isn’t taking away a kid’s electronics considered a form of child abuse?”

Nice try kid.

Give the gift of words.
