I remember in summer camp a bully would rat-tail everyone with a towel until someone would fess up to the farting.

My rule is insist on John Wayne behavior.

"I won't be wronged, I won't be insulted, and I won't be laid a hand on. I don't do these things to other people and I expect the same from them."

Old fashioned, these days, but whatever problems the children have to deal with from the crap their parents dealt them, they CAN behave properly.

Children in those situations need lots of time, and lots of love.

Grandad always told me that 'you don't have to be smart, to be good'.

If that's too harsh, I'm sorry, but that's the way it is around papa John.

The story never says who actually farted in the car.

This jerk was my Dad. Now, I don’t touch my kids at all because I’ve learned that there are harsher penalties for serious infractions (obviously not farting, which always brings a chuckle and a reminder to say excuse me). I remember when I was a kid and my brother and I were in trouble for playing in a nearby junkyard. My mother pleaded with my Dad not to give us the belt, and he reluctantly agreed. We were given a choice. Take the belt or stay in our room all day. After about an hour stuck in the room, my brother and I opened the door and asked for the belt. We dared each other to cry as my father wailed away on our butts. In the end, we got to go back out an play. That’s all that mattered. That was the only time our Dad gave us that kind of choice. After that, it was back to the knuckle sandwich for every stupid, or imagined, mess up. So, now that I’m a parent, I do my best to keep the punishments equitable. An hour inside the room is way harsher than physical punishment to an active kid. The lesson also lasts longer. Back to this guy, though. He just sounds sadistic! Farting, really? That is truly extreme. Looking back, I think even my father would’ve just laughed at that.

No... it’s not harsh.

I believe kids need discipline and nurturing both.

Don’t want to raise a #$^% liberal.

In 8th grade, I actively sought out a diet that would help me fart in science class. There were 5 of us who would have competitions.

It was the dad who farted.
After all, as everyone knows, “He who smelt it, dealt it.”

way is to simply keep a fly swatter around ~ hit a bug with it every now and then ~ never clean it. Tell the kid ‘I’ll get the fly swatter after you’ ~ now that will work ~
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
That’ll work...must be the grandfather to
“The girls room mirrors in school always had smears wear the girls were ‘blotting’ their lipstick and everyone was getting ticked. The Janitor says “get a bunch of them in there and I will get it stopped”...girls were getting lectured about how hard it was to clean and unsanitary etc when the janitor came in with his bucket and squeegie. Said excuse me, went to the first stall, dipped the squeegie and proceed to wash the mirrors. Never had lipstick on them again.

“Seen ‘em like that. One of my wife’s brothers ~ when he was maybe 11 or 12 ~ something like that, got up on the lazy susan in the middle of the dining room table and spun it while ausfahrting to beat the band ~ full noise effects.”

My 17yo son barked one in the car on highway 840 in TN about 2 in the morning. It was about twenty degrees outside and it was so bad, we HAD to pull over on the shoulder and the whole family jumped out of the car like it was going to explode! Mom and I were cussing and he just laughed and laughed. We left all four doors open for about ten minutes before we attempted to leave. I said, maybe we should just burn the car.

I've got an 18 mo old grand-daughter. I don't babytalk her, and sorry, if she doesn't speak english, spanish, or french, I can't understand, even if I can hear her.

Have you taught her the, "pull my finger" joke yet?

“In Germany, everybody fahrts in their cars.”

Jah! There are at least three kinds of Fahrts in Germany, Einfahrt, Zufahrt and Ausfahrt. Take your pick!

I had a dog that could let some real smellers fly...funny thing was he’d get up, give us all a dirty look and walk out of the room....which made it twice as funny...

I think the real story behind the story here is that the kids didn't rat each other out, even after low-grade torture.

Says a lot about these kids.

If I was the dad I would sleep with one eye open, if he ever gets near these kids again.

A spanking is now reported as national news

The pictures showed a 6-year-old, with several bruises on the buttocks, legs and thighs, and the 12-years-old, had bruises on the legs and thighs, while the 9-year-old refused to have pictures taken of the injuries for fear of retaliations if Davis found out that they reported the incident, according to reports.

Scuba diving is the BEST for building up large amounts of...air(?)... inside of oneself.

The 'morning after' multiple dives can cause the brass & woodwinds section to dominate the whole orchestra!
