Some of these may considered abuse these days. But I was brought up with almost all of these. We learned the consequences from them though! And we always knew our parents loved us by making us take responsibility for our actions.
I love my daughters very much, but will always miss their brother. Ben we love you and your hello every evening, like clock work, because it is your watch alarm that goes off every evening, for almost 16 years now, we still haven't changed the battery! Thanks for keeping an eye on us.
