    same here, or i threaten them that they have to sleep at the house of my husbands exwife. this works especially well with my oldest aftershe has seen her in a bikini.

    they are also not allowed to cross the state line by themselfs unless they are wearing purple underwear and its the fifth wednesday of a month after 5pm and no later than 5.37pm.

    This was my absolute worst....best..whatever. [​IMG] We had recently moved into our new house. We had just moved back here from Alaska and I didn't have a lawn mower yet....we didn't really have a yard in Alaska. So, the grass was pretty tall at the side of the house. I told the kids to stay out of it as there were snakes and I didn't want them bit. I went back in the house. A few minutes later I look out and they were in the tall grass. I calmly walked out called them over and said....."it is Saturday. I have no desire to spend the rest of the day at the hospital. If you go bak in the tall grass and get snake bit I am going to just leave your twitching carcass laying there until the vultures take care of it"......while they REALLY did NOT believe me, they thought twice before going back. LOL Thankfully, my kids and I really understand each other and I can get by with such!!! [​IMG]

    My kids or one would take that offer! [​IMG]

    I always have to remind my husband if he makes a threat he needs to be prepared for it to be carried out!

    OMG, I'm not sure I should say??? [​IMG]

    When my 18 year old was in her terrible two's and tried to throw a tantrum in the store I used to tell her I was gonna make her go outside and sit on the curb until I was done shopping.

    She never threw another one. [​IMG]

    My ex has two other kids under 4 and whenever the older one wants something he's not allowed he tells him it has poop on it! LOL..I laugh everytime....everything has poop on it. He wanted to go upstairs at our house once and my ex says, "No there's poop up there!" He just gets this werid look on his face, looks up the stairs, looks back at us, and goes and sits down.

    Poop...who knew?

    Or if he wants to eat a piece of candy he tells him it's hot (spicey)! That kid puts that candy down so fast...must've had a bad experience! [​IMG]

    When we were given our BB guns we were told we had to be prepared to eat whatever living creature we shot. I was a bit of a tree hugger growing up, so I had no trouble with that rule, but my brothers had to eat several frogs (which was fine, because frog legs are yummy [​IMG] ). It wasn't until they had to eat the mouse that they understood how serious our parents were. I hunt occasionally now, but I don't believe my brothers have touched anything other than paintball guns since that little episode.
