It’s no secret that some people in this world do not know how to properly park their cars within one parking space. Why they don’t know may always remain a secret to those of us who don’t know the person personally.

However, instead of simply huffing at them in annoyance or going to drastic measures – such as smashing into the offending car – there’s something even more fun you can do. And it all started because of a high school jock. We all know that sports cars usually mean a stuck up, spoiled brat. Or a man who has gone through his midlife crisis.

However, in the context of how this fun idea got started, it was a bright yellow Saturn convertible. They parked so that the line between the two spaces was pretty much smack dab in the center of the space…under the car. Unbelievable, right? How much common sense does it take to park in the center of your spot instead of on the sides of two spots?

Luckily for the rest of us, a man who was fed up with this happening in his area decided to actually do something about it. It involved setting a small piece of paper on the front seat of the car and moving on.

The paper says “Many three year olds have trouble staying within the lines” above a picture of a coloring book grade turtle. Below the turtle, it says “Maybe if you practice coloring this turtle, it will help with your parking”. Burn!

Children get spoiled because they are not used to being denied anything. They are used to getting whatever they want, and when they don’t get what they want, they throw a fit. This can be frustrating for the parents, who then give in to the child’s demands in order to avoid a confrontation.

However, if parents consistently deny their children things that they want, the children will eventually learn to stop demanding things. They will learn to be content with what they have, and they will be less likely to throw fits when they don’t get what they want.

Parents just need to be strong and stand their ground. The more they give in, the more spoiled their children will become. If parents are consistent with discipline and just say “No” when their child asks for something that can’t or shouldn’t be given, then eventually their child will understand that sometimes things just aren’t possible. They won’t be so quick to demand things, and they will be more content with what they have.

It’s not always easy to deny a child something, but it’s important to do it in order to help them become better-adjusted adults. So parents, don’t be afraid to say “No” when your child asks for something they can’t have. It will benefit them in the long run.
