Something that always sticks with me is once when round a friends house another mate and his wife were there with their kid.

At one point the mum had to go outside to take a phone call and their kid kicked off (wanting his mummy)

The dad took the son outside and told him to calm down and handled all out of our ear shot.

It wasn’t just his awareness of us being there that I respected him for but when your kids kick off you can get very frustrated and often embarrassed in groups of people. So by taking his boy to one side none of us noticed and he could deal with it calmly.

I didn’t have kids at the time but it’s stuck in my mind since.

Same! but in my case my daughter was born in Catalunya where supporting Barca is pretty much a given... she's not interested in Barca only Palace.

Some would say that's bordering on child cruelty

Actually though I told her she has to go to SP once and if she didn't like it I'd never take make her go again, she's been 5 times now and still hasn't seen us win!

I was out for a meal with my parents and four year old son one time, my son was kicking off big time at the start of the meal, so I calmly took him out of the restaurant and we had a calm man to man chat about the behaviour that was expected. Rest of the meal passed smoothly and my old man pulled me to one side afterwards and told me that was exactly how he used to deal with me at that age. Parental influence.

Great parenting varies from culture to culture, but the differences won’t be too big.
A friend of mine at work, who is Turkish told me a good story…
The uncle (of my work colleagues wife) has 2 teenage sons, one of which is an angel, and the other the opposite. Always in some sort of bother and very disrespectful to his parents.
He was giving the dad some lip and the dad gave the son a slap – nothing too hard but a slap across the face. Anyway the son phoned the police and they arrived and told the dad off, big time. He was furious, but didn’t react at the time.
A few months later they went back home to Turkey on holiday and the dad gave the son several slaps this time, after which he said to him “Call the police now”. The son didn’t bother – he knew it was pointless. But apparently he is now a well behaved kid.

It wouldn’t have been my tactic I must add.

Maybe he was water-boarding the child in the garden, and didn't want witnesses
Seriously, sounds like a well-rounded parent

I had my youngest son on my shoulders for the semi-final at Villa Park. Early in the second half something kept flicking in my upper sight line. Turned out it was my seven year old giving the full coffee beans to the Liverpool fans to our right.

What a day that was. I was on the same terrace but down the front. PEmbos run and goal was probably the most ecstatic i have been at a football match.

When your daughter is sick into the jacket pocket of a diner on the table next to yours in a Whacky Warehouse type pub it is best to pay the food bill and leave before he notices. Narrow escape that one.

Yeah but you pussied it down the front. I found a safe space half way up next to the fence so I could feel the full force of their coins.

A friend of my wife’s has a 17yr old daughter. She started going off the rails, staying out late... not going college, answering back, smoking. The dad brought a suitcase... left it empty in the living room. When she got home... he said “you have 15 mins to put all your possessions in there. You’re moving out, Your aunt is going to put you up for a few days, while the council find you a bedsit” The daughter being headstrong... said fine... she packed her bag... went to her aunts. Her aunt put her on a sofa-bed, refused to cook for her.... made her do own washing... and told her she had 48 hours to find somewhere or she’s sleeping in a shop doorway.
After 1 day... she phoned to come home... dad said no. On her last day, she was pleading with her dad... he still said no. The aunt then said she’d found her a bed in a hostel...she put the sobbing teenager in the car... drove her to the hostel... where her dad was waiting... he put her in his car and drove her home.

It’s not what I would do, but he hasn’t had any problems with her since.

If you’ve got the balls to do it then it’s a good move. I’m assuming the hostel bed story was a lie?

I suppose he had the safety net that she was with the aunt so safe prior to that so wasn’t as if he kicked her on the streets and into God knows what. Potentially a life of theft and drugs.
