another self-evident truth

I haven’t been awake for half an hour and the little boy scribbled on one of the little girls hello kitty toys and the wife said “next time you scribble on something that’s not yours, I’m going to spank your but” which will never happen because it never does. She likes to talk about consequences and says that the threat of a consequence is enough but I’m not so sure if this is adequate parenting. Consequences don’t have to be physical but there has to be something. I sometimes deeply ponder ways to escape all the talking, fighting, yelling and threats of an absurd meaningless nature, to a world where silence reigns and the choices of sounds would be mine.
