The first one -- informed me that they were right. So I agree with that copy of the constitution including preamble. Like everything work toward Tibet it would be very bright and -- The spec -- -- -- achieve -- -- in the morning I decided to deal for them as they say. Feel like dancing. -- -- So it was so humiliating for them that -- if if they were the bad mood you would get out of the car at school dance. It that you're about because they didn't wanna get up. And they decided that they were just not got a -- that day I had important goal I've bought them at school. And you would dance.

The data link from what I can tell his jets rained some land -- they come out there wouldn't. To do what you have to do it and it. I don't have any problem and a walk around with -- take an -- but I don't. You know -- -- -- he adored gonna land on -- -- I'm not and the door. Thought it and it I'm you have why do you had to do something in the beginning that that made him realize that there were consequences for negative behavior. I object I -- it ever being. -- -- -- -- -- World that after that teenager. I know any emotion in the changes and all back and talk with her and I told are you in talks. Rural -- broke out that it can be confident. -- him. And then when you know like she's like -- deal which -- -- it at that point out talent you remember you know we talked about it. And you're not under at that point and you and I. Don't you go chill out with close game when it's storming and lark she would help me old. She would tell and wouldn't. And literally take -- -- -- and I appreciate you go over and take stock and beat him in and day I don't. -- and hoped he would be at. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Yeah you can't you Coke and Coke in the coax them and talk. That's how I can say it didn't happen at eighty from the mid air act how it would and we have a grand. I'm not going to -- the show would have a great weekend and that's really great point. The best way to discipline teenagers is to start disciplining them when they're very young. But so let's -- somebody's got a teenager what do you think is a good creative way to discipline a teenager today. I'm scoots in the morning it for Tommy Tucker it's 831 hears daily David Blake with a WWL there's nothing they don't get a lot of interesting suggestions on how to discipline teenagers. There was one earlier. A guy said he would take the of that from -- off the bedroom for a couple of days until -- they've learned to behave and every time they misbehaved he would take the he protected the door off the bedrooms -- that would have no privacy oblong. And I guess cellphones and here's another text about a cellphone nearly. Only way I can get to my daughter is to. Take away her social umbilical cord herself phone. Swear that her life depends on that financial lifeline. And so you take it away from -- or got a text joy from somebody said they called the they called the phone company and had a service. Erupted. -- -- -- daughters obviously changed. Is an amazing that suddenly one day you got this loving child them and then they turn on yeah. You know it's like thank goodness the hormones kick in and they don't want anything to do with yet. They don't wanna listen to your music they don't want of that you know about them and the list goes on line it's all part of nature -- I'm getting -- about disciplining. Teenage girls than disciplining -- -- boy's or girl's worst than boys I think so it was in my case -- Catholic and I told you on my daughter. You know you know issues fortunately -- round. The error for ways but during those early seniors that room the clock effort on my feet up. You guys -- crawl across the close to get through the room. Solicited sex -- said that when their daughter wouldn't cleaner upper room reporter clothes away. They forced her to take a close to the laundromat. -- -- and that caused her to start to take care for room and figure close. -- about frustrated father who moved his daughter's bedroom furniture to the driveway and put up a sign for everybody to see Haley rule move to driveway clean it next time.

I'm -- in the morning unfortunately Tucker your blog today is titled still haunted by my night in the ring with the midget wrestler. It's on our website at WW dot com also on our FaceBook page we'll talk to a Kevin Griffin of -- -- -- -- next hour. About this time but but 940. -- talk about the twelfth annual as for open charity events benefiting competitiveness for foundation which has a lot of great things for causes to people in the door with Syria.

So what's the best way -- -- the best creative ways to discipline a teenager behind students in -- Tommy Tucker Tommy will be back on Monday. Here is attacks I love this -- when my daughter wouldn't put her clothes away I threatened to hang her underwear on the mailbox. Or response was I don't care. However when I proceeded to the mailbox with her underwear she suddenly felt the urge to quickly pick her close up anyway. I never had -- for again. Here's another embarrassing community is I love the caller we had earlier from a from a it was tootsie of the North Shore. She said that what she would do to get her for for kids weren't bad mood if they didn't get up intended to make the boss if they were in a bad grouchy mood on the way to school. She would say I'm gonna get out of the car when I drop off a school and I'm gonna dance. She says she wasn't very good dancer but he -- she was that would still be rather embarrassing. What do great and she said to this day all she has to do is tell our daughters I'm I feel like dancing and that sent a message to them. To -- Now again the best way to discipline a teenager is to start when they're very young -- mean you can't just start when somebody's teenagers it's at that point for me it's just too late. -- I particularly cellphones I think it's a good idea but here's a text that -- to take -- -- to cellphone doesn't work. Don't fool yourself my daughter had a friend drop off a phone. Two were in the bushes when I was at home so she had another phone and I didn't know. Welding you take that phone away from where you you figure out something else but you have a responsibility to. I'd be more creative that your kids and if your parent. I'm. Really have a hard time dealing with this whole idea -- what to do that teenagers what what can I did well you can actually. Take things away from them. And since there's so attached to the cellphone and the Internet that's where I would start. Here is attacks that reads. A -- my wife is new engine. Actually it's a Japanese my wife -- Japanese and uses pepper mix called blunt -- With the kids get -- a provoke a -- so bury your WL. Similar in this a bit worried that you -- the great moment when they're young it to. Ultimately help the teenager a couple of things I would not too difficult -- -- if you believe in corporal punishment in Q also we've been looking like you -- Hebrew slaves. And enumerated. As well about the prompt the world to -- -- -- -- think about my most of the consequences. But with the creative -- the message he didn't in front. Well thought that would get like that can be able. He did you -- about it -- -- -- yeah it would -- up for you to get the golf which critics. And years to help wall and the maple -- -- and ultimately won the critical. And what he could go up credentials that the vote and he did at one block -- from Atlanta. What broke out at a crash in it would have picked to protect it data to couple garbage at what street while it. There as an interesting story have a great week Glaser called. I don't know I'm not in favor of like breaking kids down but you know you got to figure out a way to get to a from New Orleans Steven your under the WL. -- -- Teenager. 1 morning he told -- he was sick so I told him home from work -- and took the TV and is asking boy whatever. And they wanted to be. Taco bill blunt as sisters but -- may -- chicken noodles and when -- came along it was. Be decided he wanted to go out for pizza to. Keep that he was never.
