Question of the day:


Let's say your daughter has been sick and you've been going into her room at night to give her medicine and calm her down but now she's all well and still expects you to go into her room everytime she wakes up (instead of sleeping through the night like she's been doing for over a year).

Now, let's say that, after a few nights, you decide to "tough-love" her: Go check on her when she cries but then put her down and let her cry it out.

Then, let's say that she finally stops crying and goes to sleep but the next day has laryngitis so bad that she sounds like a throat-cancer patient.

How long should you punish yourself for being a terrible parent?

Obviously until the women in your life tell you to stop.....until then keep whipping away.

Your little girl is sooooooo cute! She's adorable!

You're a good dad! She won't remember the incident when she's older. She won't be able to use it against you or use this as a bribing tool, so I think you're safe.

Well, she will forget, except for the fact that you put it in
writing on the World Wide Web so that she and humanity can refresh their memories to all your actions that may scar her emotionally and ruin her life...

I have often debated putting so much in writing on the internet, thinking that some day my children will read it and be scarred for life. But I figure, every parent has something embarassing that the kids discover so why fight it. Besides, if they discover this, they might stop looking for the homemade porn.
