Meet Wendy, who can’t control her bratty 10 year-old fat ass Noah.
Listen as they discuss an altercation on an airplane. The basic rundown: kid wants mother to turn down volume of little TV thing and jabs her with elbow. Mother jabs back. Kid causes incident on airplane. Some of the details are lacking.
If my 10 year-old son had the gall to elbow me (or his mother) about the volume on the screen, I wouldn’t have elbowed him back, I would have grabbed offending elbow and dug my fingernails into his arm and held it there, demonstrating my superior strength, preventing him from moving – the more he struggled, the harder I would squeeze. I would have calmly explained that one does not jab one’s elbow into parents to get their attention and then released him. If that didn’t work, well… there’s no point in continuing because it would have worked. My 10 year-old would have had 10 long years of growing up in the presence of the terrible & mighty father whose deep voice, imposing figure, and powerful corporeal punishment techniques have kept said 10 year-old in line all these years.
Listen to the way fatty Noah talks to his mother and listen to the way she talks to him. She tries to reason with him, she tries to come to some kind of polite accord. Typical diplomatic bullshit.
My conversation would have been much shorter. “If you physically assault me, you’re picking a fight with me. Look at me. Look at you. Who do you think is going to win that fight?” If he needs proof, he’ll get it.
At one point it is mentioned that Noah called CPS and claimed his mother was abusing him. Since children reach the conclusion that CPS is an authority greater than the parent, sometimes they foolishly believe that lying about abuse to CPS is a way to exercise authority over their parents. I ran that by my dad once when I was a kid. He called my bluff and said go ahead. I didn’t, because he explained what would happen.
“Even if you succeed in convincing these people that we did in fact abuse you – and good luck with that – what will be the result? In the worst possible case scenario for me I’d go to jail, but what do you suppose will happen to you? Foster care? Is that what you want? Will that be better than here?”
If you want to see what happens when women attempt to raise boys, this is a prime example. This grown adult woman lets a 10 year old brat walk all over her. Is it because he has a penis? Is it because she’s his son and she loves him? Either way, it’s retarded. That shit would never fly in a household with a father present because the boy would not challenge his father the way he’ll challenge his mother.
Women: please stop trying to raise boys. You can’t. You are doing a disservice to yourself, your son, and to all of us with your ineptitutde.
