Bravo, Daddy P

It’s gonna be a Happy Thanksgiving for the Peterson family.

Turkey, cran, stufffing… And daddy won’t be stuffing leaves in the kids’ mouths. I’m sure it’ll be a much more festive atmosphere knowing that if you spill the gravy, you won’t have to take the switch.

Because Daddy Peterson says he won’t be using them anymore. He told the USA Today “I won’t ever use a switch again.”

Bravo, Daddy P. Father of the year. But as a point of clarification, are you emptying your toolbox or just taking the switch out of it. Are you keeping your belts and paddles or are you ditching them as well? And if so, how are you going to discipline one of your kids if he draws on the wall or spills his milk in your car. If you can’t go to the switch then what, A.P.: “”timeout, taking their toys away, making them take a nap. There’s so many different ways to discipline your kids.”

Great stuff there, super nanny. You’re a regular Dr. Spock. AP rattles off those strategies they’re all incredible revelations. Anybody who has read one sentence of a baby book, taken one minute to educate themselves, or has even one speck of common sense knows all that already.

So to the question of is he saying it because he believes it or is he saying it because he wants to play again. I’m going to assume the latter since he originally said he wouldn’t quote eliminate whooping his kids.

Question… if you’re no longer whooping your kids, what happens to that whooping room in your house? Here’s hoping he turns it into a man cave. Or better yet, a playroom for the kids that he used to beat in there.

But I doubt that’ll happen. Dude’s all about himself. And the kids probably have no interest in entering a room that they’ll have nightmares about for the rest of their lives, anyway.
