Since Marissa has been testing boundaries lately, I've been keeping everyone informed on our parental (lack of) control.
About two weeks ago, we went to Publix and she was acting out in the grocery store. I immediately went to check out. On the way home, she was screaming and kicking my chair. What is a Mom to do?
I immediately drove to the police station. I informed the officer that I had an eight year old who was having issues with respect and automobile safety. He had a little conversation with her that produced tears followed up by a sheriff badge sticker. Apparently I am not the only Mom to have done this.
By the way, she's been much better this last week.
