    The fact that it even came to trial is astounding! The father/lawyer should get fined for wasting court time!

    As if parenting needs that kind of pressure on top of it.

    oh my goodness… for one, my kid is turning four tomorrow, and I KNOW I’ve built up a repertoire of grievances already… I think the father, as a lawyer, should either have his license suspended for participating in a BEYOND frivolous lawsuit (we know he never assisted with disciplining the kids, probably a reason she ditched the d*****e), and also fined, because lets face it, he’s representing his kids against his ex-wife in a case that would clearly be a conflict of interests.. Good call to the judge for taking the case and ruling for mom.

    @Pixielation – hey hi! I haven’t “talked” to you in a while. I wish they would have fined the father – but they didn’t. In fact, the they didn’t even make him pay for the mother’s court fees. Such a jerk.

    @Meg, IKR? There would be pages fo stuff from Junior to the judge. Pages. He has called me the meanest mom on earth, for pete’s sake :) I agree, he never assisted in disciplining those kids and probably enabled them on their way to becoming ungrateful brats.

    OMG!!! I was going to try to comment on this but ……I am just sitting here shocked. The mother should turn around and sue the three of them!!!

    All I can say is that almost nothing beat the moment when my 13-year-old daughter, observing some out-of-control children screaming and flinging stuff around the cabin of our airplane on an 8-hour flight, climbed onto my lap and said, “Thank you, mom, for telling me “no” and for never letting me think that this behaviour was acceptable…”. While I certainly agree that the dad is a dirtbag and the kids are whacky, somehow, someone gave those kids unreasonable ideas of how to behave and the mom didn’t exactly set them straight…a sad reflection on how our kids are being socialized. Thank goodness the judge saw it for what it was!

  6. Laurie Says:

    @Liz, IKR? It’s actually sad. At some point, I hope those kids regret it.

    @NZD, I totally agree with you that this says a lot about how our kids are being raised nowadays. I took the whole lawsuit, though, with the lack of cash in the cards and the “haggling” over the cost of party dresses as the mother’s way of trying to reign in the little brats. An actual quote from the Dad said he “tried” to persuade them not to file suit against their mother, but they wanted to anyway. Seriously. He “tried.” To me that says everything about his parenting skills.

    You are never too old to not be corrected by your momma! I would so ear twist my kids out of the court house after this! I hurt, literally, heart and soul, for this mother. She does not deserve that callous treatment. I feel the judge should have sent those spoiled adults to work community service at a treatment facility, safe house, or Children Services office to see what “Bad Mothering ” really is. The father/lawyer needs to be disbarred for prejudice,bigotry,and bribery. He turned his children away from a good mother, reduced the mother to nothing, and then I am sure he bribed them to go along with this cockamamie scheme. I support the judge. She is right, it would so open the doors to every other spoiled or mean child to sue their parents for appropriate discipline measures and normal restrictions. If I blew off curfew for an after party or threw a fit on an over priced dress? I wouldn’t have ever left the house again except for school, nor would I have had a dress bought for me at all. My children have the same ammunition against me, normal discipline, not giving in to spoiled tantrums, eating healthy meals,etc etc. I guess we can share a cell Manic!

  8. Laurie Says:

    @Gina, LOL, yep, we’ll be sharing a cell. I just feel so sorry for the mother. I can’t imagine having your kids sue you. Horrible. Just horrible.
