Survivor Series: Sleeping Beauty

New series | Movie titles that remind me how my kids get out of trouble

Sleeping Beauty is when a child…let me just tell the story.  You’ll get what I mean.

Two years ago our family was driving somewhere.  During this trip #2 starts crying really loud.

I ask, “What happened?”

#2 is crying so hard she can’t talk so #1 answers, “#3 punched #2 in the face.”

I am really upset so I look in the rear view mirror to scold #3 but he is pretending to be sleeping. Unreal.  I have never gone from pure anger to vibration (trying to hold in laughter) so fast.  My wife and I are both looking out the window trying so hard not to laugh even though what took place was so bad.

If you ever come across the Sleeping Beauty technique, the most important thing is to not laugh.  That will be your greatest challenge in executing discipline for this type of survival skill.
