kids grrr.........part II!
For those of you who read my first post on this subject, things have progressed since then. My wife finally came around and decided that it was time for some "tough love." All along, it has been me against my wife and daughter when it came to discipline. I was told, more than once, "quit being a cop all of the time." Well, now that things have come to the point that they have, suddenly my wife decided that maybe I was right. So, as a result, my daughter is under a strict curfew, has no car or cell phone and spent a week in a juvenile facility when she decided she was going to do things her way. One of the hardest things I ever had to do was call the police to have my kid picked up when she refused to come home. That's to say nothing of the embarassment I went through when I went to the city P.D. and knew every cop there, and have had to work with them everyday since. At least it seems that my daughter is getting her act together, and I don't intend to give up on her.
