Becoming the Alpha Dog in Your Own Home
Parents are borrowing from Cesar Millan, the Dog Whisperer, who is known for inspiring discipline, order and devotion.
We needed a freakin' dog whisperer to tell us what our mamas learned from their mamas YEARS ago?
Mine are so freakin' independant now that there might not be a measure of success, but the point is that they got there well managed.
They are old enough now to make and stand by their own decisions. That was not the case maybe ten years ago when #1 son scratched his initials, backwards, into the sitter's car.
He required instruction, and he received it in nauseating detail.
What did Mama say when she was actually able to say something intelligible? Make them mind you now, or they never will.
That demented mind has a wizened base.
