Bone Doctor has never had to care for Little Jo for a whole day on her own until a few weeks ago. Much to her relief, Sister came home earlier than planned and took over care. Bone Doctor was quite stressed.
Mother related to me that last week when Bone Doctor had to care for Little Jo for the whole day again, Bone Doctor ended up giving Little Jo a smack. Sister came home and sent Bone Doctor to her room to chill out.
Bone Doctor is always very calm, rational and un-emotional. I can only guess what Little Jo did to provoke a smack. But then I have seen Little Jo do many things that she should get a smack for. I recently chipped her for throwing a ball inside. She threw it again and it hit the venetian blinds. I raised my voice somewhat. She went running to Uncle R.
Not my business but I really do question these modern child rearing methods. I just pick up the trail of destruction afterwards. But back in my days...........
