One thing's for sure, as the old saying goes, the apples don't fall far from the tree. As a parent, you do your best to train them between birth and when they leave the house. A lot of praying, good times as well not so good times. But in the end, they make you proud. I have a soon-to-be college graduate (VT) in May, a soon-to-be high school graduate in June as well as a soon-to-be elementary school "graduate" in June (haha). Yep, I know......we pulled the band-aid off slowly.

I remember going to the door with my brother in law when his daughter's first "formal" date came to pick her up. We are both big guys. The kid was nervous and before we invited him in, we stepped out on the porch and had a word with him. My B-I-L told him his expectations of safety and courtesy and finished with the fact he had 16 kills in Viet Nam and 17 would not bother him in the least. I finished the conversation with "prison was a bitch, but I wouldn't mind going back if I had too". The kid was speechless. She told him we were a bunch of liers later, but he treated her like a princess and was also very cautious around us. She is in her 30's now. I have a 17 year old grand daughter now.....that schtick stll works.
