A Lesson In Parenting

Check out the following article. It is flat out awesome. And all too rare.

Good Parenting: Kid Breaks Vacuum To Play XBox Instead Of Doing Chores; Mom Sells Xbox, Pranks His MySpace

That's exactly the kind of thing my mom did to my sorry ass when I was that age. And I know now that I deserved it. I wish we saw more of this kind of discipline than the empty threats and wishy-washyness of so many parents nowadays who let their kids run the show.

Thoughts?

Maybe she should have broken the XBox instead by beating him over the head with it? :)
