Mr. Forthright Gives Parenting Advice On How To Raise Kids Who Aren’t Awful

The aptly named Mr. Forthright shares his own version of helpful parenting advice.

I believe in discipline. Disciplining the children is all about consistency. Children need to know the consequences of their actions like every time you fail a test, I will fail to give you dinner. Every time you hit your little brother, I will hit you with the car. Every time you throw a tantrum, I will throw you a surprise birthday party in your bedroom at four in the morning with clowns.
