Mom’s “Rules for Dating My Son” Are as Bad as Dad’s “Rules for Dating My Daughter”
I know, my co-worker sent it to me because she knew I had teenage boys and I had to post it made me laugh. I don't mind going back to jail. And to be there to support and comfort him when he inevitably makes a few bad ones. Are you counting on my son to pay your bills while you sit around, pull the bedbugs out of your navel, and write stupid ass rules for dating your daughter? One of the theories behind comedy is to build up tension and then release it. Just give a damn time. Sections of this page.
APPLICATION TO DATE MY SON
And that instead of being kind and nonjudgemental and respecting everyone, they should make judgements on the human value of others based on a very objective criteria? Blogging from sunny South Florida passionate about travel, good food, entertainment, and enjoying family time Actually, I think dating is difficult, regardless of age. I don't mind going back to jail. We believe this commentary is just as harmful in perpetuating stereotypes.
It's not funny when you have a son. It's not funny when someone assumes your Star Wars watching, animal loving boy is a threat to anyone. Macho Rules for Dating my Daughter, I've got some feedback for you and your silly little rule list. Are you counting on my son to pay your bills while you sit around, pull the bedbugs out of your navel, and write stupid ass rules for dating your daughter? School is his job right now. Obviously, it was never your focus.
Understand I don't like you. Understand he probably doesn't care. Also, understand your snotty little princess might get on my last nerve. That's an odd statement. Are you on any psychiatric drugs or did you fail basic physics in school? You hurt her, I hurt you. First of all, that is a comma splice. You would have learned fancy writing skills in school. If you hurt him, I can promise that you will never know what hit you. I will fly at you with some Lifetime movie level shenanigans like the Wicked Witch of the West on meth riding a Dyson.
Be home 30 minutes early. Then tell BOTH of them to be home 30 minutes earlier than you originally said. Just give a damn time. Why does my son need legal representation? Is dating your daughter is a crime because she is such a special princess? If you lie to me, I will find out. Did Harry Potter mind reading skills come with your "I am everywhere" starter kit? She is my princess, not your conquest. I didn't know princesses traded in their crowns and gowns for shorts that show their gender.
My son generally wears pants that cover his genitals. Who is the conquest, again? Actually, I think dating is difficult, regardless of age. But the crux of the matter for me is that these memes remove any responsibility from the dater themselves, and puts all the responsonibilty on the datee and the parent.
That said, I can be a rather intimidating person, even while being perfectly civil, and I fully plan to use that if the need arises. I knew I was doing something wrong. I shall immediately endeavour to be less reasonable. This is totally the point: As a young male, I agree with you. It seems like these posters are looking for a reason not to like the person who is dating their son or daughter.
You hit the nail on the head, have fun, be safe and just have respect. As I did, because my parents certainly would never have set any rules for who I dated. And I definitely made some mistakes, which I learned from and, frankly, I had some fun in the process of learning, too. It is possible since kids are actually thinking human beings — contrary to what these rules imply to thoroughly enjoy something and still decide that it is not wise to do it again.
I like your rules much better. This is a world where people say too much and mean too little. Jokes often go too far. The meme is about control. Of course you did! And that is, of course, my point. Maybe these people are joking — poking a certain amount of good natured fun at themselves.
The trouble with these types of memes is that once they worm their way into pop culture, even if they start as a joke, they take seed there. You have to be carefuly with pop culture. Somehow the perspective shifts and morphs into something quite fearful. I also fear mob mentality to the same degree. I think you would make a wonderful sentinel, Jo. The fantasy kind who protect what is sacred and good about life and sound the alarm for what threatens it.
Possibly more dangerous, because memories even shared memories tend to romanticise the past. The Internet was poorer for your extended absence my friend. Just pray I manage to instil that self respect, responsibility and ability to make well-informed decisions….
You have self-respect, act responsibly, and make well-informed decisions. And nothing is more powerful in your parenting repertoire than modelling the behaviour you want to see. First, your sons are tots, most intelligent people agree that your opinion on this wont be formed until they ARE dating.
But yes by all means continue living in a fantasy world. Out of curiosity, what exactly is your point here? Or that all teenagers are incapable of making choices and living with the consequences?

Iamges: rules for dating my son funny
I may appear to be a pudgy, baggy-eyed, last-season, has-been. Oh know I more worried about my boys not moving out of the house and my daughter wanting to move out LOL.
