    I just got this email. The timing could not be better as just this week, my DS has somehow gone from that cute little mama's boy to , well, one of THOSE!!!!!


    Poem to MOM

    My son came home from school one day,
    With a smirk upon his face..
    He decided he was smart enough,
    To put me in my place.

    'Guess what I learned in Civics Two,
    that's taught by Mr. Wright?
    It's all about the laws today,
    The 'Children's Bill of Rights.'

    It says I need not clean my room,
    Don't have to cut my hair
    No one can tell me what to think,
    Or speak, or what to wear.

    I have freedom from religion,
    And regardless what you say,
    I don't have to bow my head,
    And I sure don't have to pray.

    I can wear earrings if I want,
    And pierce my tongue & nose.
    I can read & watch just what I like,
    Get tattoos from head to toe.

    And if you ever spank me,
    I'll charge you with a crime.
    I'll back up all my charges,
    With the marks on my behind.

    Don't you ever touch me,
    My body's only for my use,
    Not for your hugs and kisses,
    that's just more child abuse.

    Don't preach about your morals,
    Like your Mama did to you.
    That's nothing more than mind control,
    And it's illegal too!

    Mom, I have these children's rights,
    So you can't influence me,
    Or I'll call Children's Services Division,
    Better known as C.S.D.'

    Mom's Reply and Thoughts

    Of course my first instinct was
    To toss him out the door.
    But the chance to teach him a lesson
    Made me think a little more.

    I mulled it over carefully,
    I couldn't let this go.
    A smile crept upon my face,
    he's messing with a pro.

    Next day I took him shopping
    At the local Goodwill Store.
    I told him, 'Pick out all you want,
    there's shirts & pants galore.

    I've called and checked with C.S.D ...
    Who said they didn't care
    If I bought you K-Mart shoes
    Instead of those Nike Airs.

    I've canceled that appointment
    To take your driver's test.
    The C.S.D. Is unconcerned
    So I'll decide what's best. '

    I said 'No time to stop and eat,
    Or pick up stuff to munch.
    And tomorrow you can start to learn
    To make your own sack lunch.

    Just save the raging appetite,
    And wait till dinner time.
    We're having liver and onions,
    A favorite dish of mine.'

    He asked 'Can I please rent a movie,
    To watch on my VCR?'
    'Sorry, but I sold your TV,
    For new tires on my car.
    I also rented out your room,
    You'll take the couch instead.
    The C.S.D. Requires
    Just a roof over your head.

    Your clothing won't be trendy now,
    I'll choose what we eat.
    That allowance that you used to get,
    Will buy me something neat.

    I'm selling off your jet ski,
    Dirt-bike & roller blades.
    Check out the 'Parents Bill of Rights',
    It's in effect today!

    Hey hot shot, are you crying,
    Why are you on your knees?
    Are you asking God to help you out,
    Instead of C.S.D.?'

    Send to all people that have teenagers, have already raised teenagers, have children who will soon be teenagers or those who will be parents someday OR ANYONE WHO'D JUST GET A LAUGH

    My oldest is only 10 but I loved it!!!
    Thanks for sharing [​IMG]
    I think all parents should have this printed out and put on the fridge. Too many kids think they are intitled to everything under the sun.....
    I am happy to say that I love thrift shopping, my kids wear shoes from payless and are well grounded raking chicken poo!!!

    I am glad you all enjoyed it! I have a feeling my teenager is not going to find it funny when it is taped to his bedroom door when he gets home! [​IMG]

    Loved it..

    when my oldest daughter was in 4th grade I walked past her and I poke my finger into her ear.. something I did just to irritate both my daughters..
    She said, "that's child abuse..,!!"
    "I'm gong to call my teacher"

    I said fine , I will look up the number for you, and while you are at it, ask her if she has an extra bedroom.. end of that story..[​IMG]

    I LOVE it! I had to swipe it and send it to a few friends who, like me, have teens. Thanks for posting that!
