    My daughter is 18 and in her first year of college. She graduated with honors and is attending college on a full academic scholarship. She maintained straight A's even though she spent half a year out of class and fought and beat cancer her sophmore/junior year.

    My son is 16 and doing well in high school. He is 2nd chair for trumpet in the marching band, takes karate classes, is active in the boy scouts, and stays out of trouble.

    They are great kids, regardless of anything kilus might think and I use that term loosely.


    Still living at home with mum, torturing small animals and adding to your transformer collection kilus?

    Again you are only stating opinions and a few facts of what your kids do, not who they are. Hell maybe that 12 year old kid in the video plays trumpet and goes to karate classes and is a scout and before this was never in trouble, maybe he beat cancer too. How do you really know your kids aren't bullies?

    Just a question, do you think your parenting skills are above average?

    I think that kids need to be taught about their choices having consequences. True C&C!

    When they do bad stuff, they should be punished for it. The punishment can take a number of forms, not necessarily physical.

    Of course, if those non-physical forms of punishment enrage the kid and he/she actually takes a swing at you (rite of passage), it helps to know ways to neutralize them with minimal pain.

    Yes, but that's only because most parents are apathetic. For example, didn't see too many parents involved in their kids activities that my children were involved in.

    When we went to parent/teacher nights - not a lot of participation. When we asked teachers for meetings to discuss our childrens performance - teachers were usually surprised.

    When going to scout meetings, I usually saw 3-5 other fathers out of 26 kids in the program. At my daughters softball games 2-3 fathers out of 18 girls on the team.

    And it's by being that involved that I know who my kids are.

    Kudos to you then for being a dedicated father, though I think you might be a bit overconfident in your kids being absolutely well-behaved and such.

    Something wich is alot harder to determine though would be if they are involved in psychological bullying, something wich is just as bad as the physical equivalent.

    Are you kidding? Didn't say they were perfect, my son for instance needs constant adjustments through various punishments so he won't turn out like kilus. It's a constant struggle. Overall he is a good kid with good intentions. It's very difficult to keep a teenage boy on track.

    And while my daughter is about as close to perfect as a human can be, she is still a snarky sarcastic smartass - I have no idea where she gets it from...

    I can't claim more than 15% credit on how my kids have turned out. They also have a great mom, a cool stepmom, and a very good role model in their stepfather. All of us have influenced them and their growth as good people.

    Well, you did say;

    Wich does sound as pretty perfect to me! ;)

    I know that my parents had hell enough raising me that I don't want any kids in the forseeable future, not taking into account accidental lobotomization causing me to forget it all.

    well I know more about raising a kid than mostpeople my age that know how to use a condom, no its not my son, its my nephew, his father is a useless sack of scum and because of that my sister had to leave him to my mother and me while she completed her studies. He is 9 years old, I am 20, I started to take care of him when he was only 4, and I am not the best tutor in the world, I mean I raised him mostly when I was a teenager, and it was my mother the one that actually paid for his every needs, but I thin kI did a good job given the circumstances, he is a shy boy, but I thin kthat is mostly genetic, but he is not a bullly as far as I can tell (he was in the same school as I was) he can be a pain in the ass with some tantrums but thats part of the course with kids younger than 10, I didn't punish him phisicaly that often, but If hadn't hit him when he was being a little jerk he woudl have ended up as his father, rambke ramble.

    I also have experience with bullying, with being bullied, and schools are half about stuies and half about socially surviving, bullies only bully people they know wont fight back, whe nI was 14 I stopped most of the bullying directed at me by kicking the "leader" bully in his back (he was that short compared to me) they resroted to childish insults the following years but by then I had already stopped giving a fuck about most of my classmates.

    There were shitloads of opportunities to get into trouble all the way trough my life until this day. You need to use your instinct at it's best all the way actually. In my first 8 years of school I simply friendly approached the older guys in my school and acted cool all the way. By the end of the 8th grade I was the bully of bullies if you know what I'm saying. Now high school, oh well. You just need to join a group and stick around it while keeping a chilled-low profile among the others.

    Why you all gotta be a part of a group? Why even bother trying to establish a "good reputation" with older students? Pfft. School Survival Guide: Keep to yourself and become an avid viewer of clock hand races.

    No hiding and no shell. Just there. If the remora cling onto the shark, so be it.

    But go ahead, suck up to the upper-classmen simply because they are upper-classmen. Ha!

    Hiding in a group is not much different.
