    I used to do that to my stepson, I’d lean in, usually from behind, and say, “Been there, done that and I know ALL the tricks. Nice try” It was fun watching him practically jump out of his skin.

    Hmm… that’s food for thought – and a blueprint for action!

    I used to do that, especially if we were out in public. It is a very effective tool.

    Sometimes silence is the most eloquent argument.

    Simply having you as a mother is the scariest thing that could possibly happen to a child.

    My kids told me all I had to do was give them “The Look”.

    Remember the Dirty Harry movies, Clint Eastwood rarely yelled he just told what he would do in a clear calm cold voice.

    A trick I learned in the military. One must not demean a subordinate in front of his peers, but what the others do not hear on parade doesn’t count. Therefore a very close low voice usually accomplishes the task.

    That “lean in and whisper” doesn’t just scare the kids. . .precede the whisper with a ten-second dead-on stare. . .

    When I was a kid, one of my aunts used to tell us that at least one of us was a “Spare”.

    They just hadn’t decided which one. . . . Yet.
