Why not, eh?

If I was being a complete prick I'd get the following:

THE look
Scamp, middle name 1, middle name 2, surname!
A very quiet warning of the impending punishment.
BOOM. Smacked arse.

If you need telling 4 times, you need a smack.

Absolutely correct. Was the only deterrent for me. The fear of mums slipper always stopped me behaving like a [email protected] Probbaly explains why I see so many spoilt brats these days as the only punishment is a stern lecture or they are not allowed to watch the tweenies.

Are you sure you can actually get away with a remark like that without sounding just a bit creepy and sinister??? Or was that what you were going for?

I'm not sure what it means in your household fella, but it's nothing sinister or creepy in mine. :rofl:

I generally got to 'THE look' and stopped whatever I was doing.

Mum was more about rewards for being good. "Help Mummy do this big food shop and I'll make sure there is a treat in there for after tea" kind of shit. Used to work though.

Dad was good cop, Mum bad cop. They did occasionally change roles but that was just confusing. I do remember offering my Granddad out when I was being a very special prick, I must of been about 12. Stepped outside onto the lawn and got dropped in 1. I never again messed about with my ex Army boxing champion and generally hard desert rat grandfather.

Mum was generally bad cop. But that was because Dad turned up on Saturday morning and took me (and my sister) off to do fun shit for the day and then dropped us back at the rule-makers.

Why? I'm good cop in my house. We never discussed these roles, it's just the why it naturally evolved.

I think Chris Grayling has done nothing the majority of parents in his generation have done. I smacked my son once or twice when he was very small...now I only hit him in self defence;).

sounds like Scamps parents were divorced the way he wrote it, and she had to do all the day to day shit and lay down rules, and dad swooped in like a superhero, spoilt the kids, and swooped out again. but maybe I'm assuming too much?!
