    Self proclaimed Meanest Mom On The Planet ,Jane Hambleton of Des Moines, Iowa is my new hero for taking the high road and making a tough choice to teach her kid a valuable and potentially life saving lesson!

    KUDOS to you and if we have any SAS sisters out there who know Jane tell her I applaud her!

    I heard about that last night and I think it's awesome. I hope I can remember that rule when my kids are old enough.

    You're right Carolyn, he probably won't "get it" until his 16 year old son/daughter gets their permit and wants a car! Then it will hit home what a great thing his Mom did for him, and what a caring thing it was.

    good for her, I'd take a po'd not talking to me kid over a dead kid anyday. Finally media attention for a parent taking a stand! As a school counselor I got to the point that I refused to attend the funerals of students that were driving drunk, because everyone was all caught up in the drama but no one acknowledged how they had got there. I felt by continuing to attend I was part of the problem. I made a lot of people uncomfortable with the words "it is sad, but it was preventable"

    I used to be known as "the Wicked Witch of the West" when we lived in California, because I wasn't afraid to take the hard line with my kids and stepkids. We lived on a military base at the time. It wasn't long before other parents began to follow some of my tactics. Maybe this Mom will start a trend, and more power to her.

    Sometimes I think parents are almost afraid to discipline their children, since the world as a whole looks at it as inhumane treatment. This Mom has taken back the power.

    Like Gail, I hear of young people almost every weekend getting killed because they or another were driving drunk. I wonder where there parents were and why they weren't keeping closer tabs on them. Maybe I'm jaded, but I also feel it is so preventable. What really gets to me is that most of these young people are only 16 years old.
