Wife Swap....hhhmmm

I'm trying to rest up today because of my "non-working" ER excursion yesterday morning courtesy of my crazy Diabetes. I have to return to work tomorrow, so I am taking it easy today watching a bit of TV. I don't know why, but I am drawn to "Wife Swap." I love seeing how other people live and react when their worlds are turned upside down by someone that lives a totally polar opposite lifestyle. I suppose it is the voyeur in me that loves to watch the turmoil as it unfolds. With that being said, I do wonder if people really live to such extremes. Personally, I have a pretty relaxed parenting style, but there are a couple of points that I expect NO deviation from. I expect my children to obey what I say at all costs, and they MUST be respectful of others especially adults. Talking back will get you in all kinds of trouble in my home. If children behave at home, they will more than likely behave when they are away from home. To me there is nothing worse to me than hearing a child argue, talk back, or be down right nasty to adults that are placed in the position to be their caregiver. With that being said "Wife Swap" always makes me thankful for my husband, my children, and my life in general. It is a great reality check.

  1. And that is one of the reasons I left the park a few days ago. Must be the Deep South raising but I simply do not get what I see happening around me in the parenting world. Hope you are feeling better today.
