    “Never say never.”

    I’ve gotten loads of good advice, but the worst I ever received is that the first time that your child sasses you to slap them across the mouth and even if they get a fat lip never to apologize or acknowledge that you feel bad for doing it. This is supposed to prevent reoccurence of the sass. Needless to say, I didn’t follow this nugget of wisdom…and yeah, my kids do sass from time to time.
