This is NOT about politics so let's please keep it that way. Apparently Obama has told his kids that if they get tattoos then he and Michelle will get the same tattoo in the same place and show it as a family tattoo on Youtube. I admire the courage. He CLEARLY does not have a difficult child. I can only imagine what Wiz would come up with if he was told that. I would probably end up with a rear view of a dog's tushie on my face if I put something like that out there. He wuold go for the most outrageous ugly thing he could because he knows that I would 100% follow through if I said I would. I hope no one gives the Obama girls that idea. It does show an understanding of teens an dhow to motivate them. Reminds me of when a friend was dating a bad boy and she ditched him because her dad kept taking him fishing and to football games. Dad was supposed to HATE him, not take him places. Esp when Dad gave her ticket to her boyfriend. Totally ruined her relationship with the guy. What raction would YOUR difficult child have to Obama's threat/statement/challenge? Would it be a challenge? A dare? A threat? or a deterrent? So far the threat of having to pay for a ton of tests iwth their own cash has kept them from tattoos while they are minors. Pointing out the saggy stretched out tattoos on people at the pool when they were little also helped. One guy couldn't figure out why I bought him a coke one day. It was a thank you because at the time Wiz was thinking tattoos were cool (he was nine maybe), He saw this man's old tattoos and that was the end of that. The pinup girl on his arm was particularly sad. She really sagged.
