Mother’s Day Videos: Old School meets New School
We live in a high tech world that makes “mothering” so, so — well, OLD SCHOOL.
Saying stuff like:
“Because I said so”
“I’m the mom”
“Are you wearing THAT?”
“Make up your Bed.”
“Comb your Hair.”
“Clean up your room.”
Stuff we say all day, everyday…but the kids just tune us out. We sound like a broken record.
We’d be better off sending a text that says, “OMG! WTH?”
Our kids think we enjoy being the “wicked witch” mom? We just want them to be well-adjusted, law-abiding, contributing members of society one day.
But to hear the response of this social media savvy swagging kid give us her view of how we sound is hilarious!
Really? Really Teen Kid?
Wait til you have kids of your own!
But the lessons I’ve learned in order to keep these social media savvy kiddies in check:
1. Hold their mobile phones hostage until all chores are done.
2. Threaten to post photos of their nasty room on Facebook & pictures of them cleaning it.
(Humiliation works, see this post on what Reshonda Tate Billingsley did to her teen)
3. Don’t pay their cell phone bill – until they learn how to get better grades.
Now, they won’t like the above. They will try you. So……keep the kids away from the gadgets (camera, computers) so they don’t “blast” YOU on social media to their friends online on how “crazy and bipolar” you are.
They will you know. When they are mad, they will resort to revenge on social media. It’s just what they do. It’s their world. Their reality.
And you won’t be ROTFL! You’ll be WTA! (Whooping they A**).
