At least she’s trying to get her to go to school.

A tire iron might be carrying it a bit too far, tho.

Sometimes you’ve got to get their attention before they’ll listen to reason!

Bond? Why?

Wintertime tends take a more "extreme" view and seems to believe that home schooling is the only way that every child in the world should be educated, and that the only parents that love their children are those that home school.

I was just tweaking his nose a bit.

I can only imagine how disappointed Tonya Burns’ husband must be over this behavior.

Those little outbursts could tear the family apart.

Tire irons were used with bumper jacks back in the 60’s and before. They were also used in dark alleys to even up the odds. I wouldn’t use the crap they make now for anything.

“Tonya”

Sounds like a real leg-breaker.
