1) Doc Searls Weblog: And loving the crap out of him seems to be working fine. : Doc : For fun Jeffrey just pressed a cold glass of orange juice against my sweaty back. I cringed and let out a yowl. Jeffrey laughed. He's a trickster, and loves it when people emote. Always has. I had just told him not to do that. This, of course, was even more reason to do it anyway.


How, short of all the wrong moves, do you parent a disobedient kid who is amused by the effects?


One of the graces of being an old parent (I'll turn 54 at the end of this month) is giving a much smaller shit than I used to. Maybe that's because every "bad" kid I ever knew (and I've known a busload) have all turned out to be A-1 adults. They also bring to mind what Ed McCabe once said: "I hate rules. They only rule out the possibility of brilliant exceptions."
