I used to box growing up, I’ve told my sons about it. My son Jason decided to take boxing lessons when he was bout 16. That was cool until he tried to show off in front of his girlfriend at the time. I’ve always told my sons, I’m the heavyweight champ of this house. Title shots are available 24/7. Whenever you think you can whoop me, let’s go. He tried it ????????????
I asked my audience two questions: “How many thought it was ok to yell at their kids?” And “How many thought yelling at their kids is unnecessary?” For those who didn’t, I told them they are going to catch hell ????????I don’t know how I could’ve raised my kids without yelling!
Steve revealed to Ellen that he isn’t as happy as most grandparents, and jokingly said that most times he doesn’t really get the appeal of having grandchildren. Plus, the “Little Big Shots” host explained why he embraced his new grey beard, and dressing up as a pimp for his family Halloween party.
Steve takes on the hotly contested debate between “old school” and “new school” parenting. Whether you belong to the camp that believes that fashion accessories like a belts were created for parents at their wits or you’re against corporal punishment of any kind, Steve’s got a bit of wisdom for you.
Here are 3 times Steve’s classic stand-up illuminated his unique take on how to deal with children who act out.
1. Fear Is A Useful Parenting Tool
In this classic clip, Steve has very little patience for meek parenting. He suggests taking a more profanity-laced approach when giving orders to his kids. If your kid is taking advantage of you left and right, take a page out of Steve’s handbook and add your own flair to it.
2. Ass-Whoopings In Moderation
Steve’s ass-whoopings are more than just forms of parental discipline, but life lessons, too. On stage, Steve explains how his father would give him an ass-beating wherever and whenever he stepped over the line.
3. Grocery Store Shoes
Despite having his kids beg for things they don’t need, Steve manages to keep them in check. On stage, he tells the audience that he doesn’t take kindly to back-talking. Essentially, Steve teaches us that sometimes parents know what’s best for their kids.
