Watch the full show.
Matt Moyer goes to my high school! He's annoying af and always acts like a little kid. And he always tries to sleep in class, and then gets yelled at.
I think your book of punishments is a superb idea, I would love to get some ideas from you. My husband and I are always having issues coming up with constructive punishments for our kids. We love our kids very much but do not want them to become the kind of people who believe they are owed things, and they should work hard and not just enough to get by. I can see how much your kids love you and respect you, and we would like our family that way too. Thank you.
I would love to take a peek at the book of punishments. I try to "make the punishment fit the crime" and it gets hard sometimes to do that. I think this show is brilliant and not as entertainment. Parents need to network and share ideas on parenting and discipline and this is a great way to do it.
Push ups for saying "Oh my God", really.
LOL teaching kids how to clean for personal respect really ?
I'm sorry you feel that way AR-Texas, but you have been misinformed. We may be strict, but we are not abusive. Our home life is actually very unstressful for everyone in our home because we are ALL happy. We don't allow our children to talk back to us, we are tough, and we do have rules. But that is part of living in America. You have to follow rules - i.e. "laws" every day. And if you don't work hard, you don't keep a job. We just prepare our children for the real world. Not unjustly, if anything we are overly constructive in everything we do. What you didn't see was us cooking, laughing, and spending quality time with our children. And if we are so terrible, why are both the teens who came to stay with us my friends on Facebook? And why do they stay in touch with us regularly? Hmmm...maybe because you can't squish five days into an hour program. Again, sorry you feel that way, but attacking us without knowing all the facts only reflects negatively back upon yourself. We canoe almost every weekend during the summer, go geocaching, and spend one-on-one time with our children all the time. Being strict doesnâ€™t mean abusive.
My focus in this comment is mainly for the Moyer children who I feel so deeply sorry for. These two **** parents ought to be in trading spouses. Their discipline toward their own children is insane and is considered abuse. As a parent of a teenager, you never treat your children like slaves or robots. Their military discipline is outrageous. They are kids for God's sake. It breaks my heart to see parents treat their children like slaves. I didn't see genuine love, or family togetherness. These people have forgotten what it is like to be a child. No child should have that much chores and expectations of perfection. What is wrong with this lazy mom cleaning? The Moyer so called "structure" is BAD PARENTING. Their own children do not seem like happy children. Poor kids if they disobey they will have to deal with their parent's ridiculous consequences and deal with the "book of bad behavior". Their whole focus is on CLEANING RESPECT and PERFECTION. They are so focused on respect that they don't respect their children as being children. They have forgotten the real sight of family. Who cares if the bookcase has dust or if the toilet hasn't been cleaned daily. The Moyer father said that one of the things of being a man is admiting your mistakes. He needs to take a close look and see how he treats his own children. So sad. This family needs to be reported to child protective services. Their is psychological and mental abuse and the mom does not put a stop to it. Shameful. CMT needs to screen these type of parents better. If those two teenagers who came to visit were my kids, I would have reported it to CMT and social services.
