      15 Things Boys Should Know Before They Turn 18 1. The kitchen? Not just for girls. Learn to use a stove. 2. If a girl tries to change you she doesn’t really love you no matter how much you want her to. 3. Shower daily, keep your nails trim and use deodorant. 4. A dutch oven is never funny. EVER. 5. It is NEVER acceptable to break up with a girl over the phone. 6. Understand how to use basic tools. 7. When you ask a girl, “Is something wrong?” and she says, “No.” She’s lying. 8. The job of a stay-at-home mom is equally as hard as yours. 9. Table manners. Use them. 10. You will never know a stronger pull than that of your friends trying to get you to participate in their wrong doing. Resisting makes you a man. Succumbing makes you a coward. 11. NEVER use your fists to solve ANY dispute. One wrong punch could take a life and it could be yours. 12. I love you 13. Never use the word gay in a derogatory manner. It’s ignorant. 14. Sexting is a federal offense. 15. Real girls do not look like Victoria’s Secret models.

I want the consequence to be a bit of a hassle for me. It prevents me from punishing him without following through and teaching him...")
