to get difficult child to listen? O.K., My kids don't usually obey me when I tell them to leave the room but this time difficult child did. I am sitting on the couch with the laptop and talking to the neighbor girl when difficult child came in the room and picked up his nerf gun. He aimed the gun at me and shot me smack dab in the middle of the forhead. OUCH!!!! WHAT????? "GET OUT OF HERE!" "I am sorry, I was aiming at the laptop"(in a very meak it-doesn't-matter-what-I-say-Mom-is-justifiably-angry tone). More out of habit - I could tell that he was shocked. Oh yeah! Do I feel a talk coming on when he is allowed back in my presence. "Just get out of here. I don't want to see you!" He can't get out of the room fast enough? It truly was an accident but it will be used as a "See what I mean about pointing weapons at people? They will go off even if you don't want them to and you will hurt or even kill someone."
