        • Yes, that's what we do. The tape is critical for the sock--wrap it a few times (not too tightly, of course), and then it's much more difficult for the dog to get it off. 1 hr 46 min ago

    "As many of you know, I attended the University of Pennsylvania with Donald Trump Jr. I feel compelled to share this story before the election, in the hopes that it will shed a bit of light on the kind of person that Donald Trump is, and the kind of son that he raised.
    I was hanging out in a freshman dorm with some friends, next door to Donald Jr.'s room. I walked out of the room to find Donald Trump at his son's door, there to pick him up for a baseball game. There were quite a few students standing around watching, trying to catch a glimpse of the famed real estate magnate. Don Jr. opened the door, wearing a Yankee jersey. Without saying a word, his father slapped him across the face, knocking him to the floor in front of all of his classmates. He simply said "put on a suit and meet me outside," and closed the door."

    at home. He got the stupid knife from my BIL for christmas. I put it in my office and told him it was off-limits and even warned him that he could get kicked out of school for bringing it to school. He claims he forgot it was in his pocket--but it never should have left my office to begin with. How would you punish? (Just for background, not bc I am defending him, he is not typically a troublemaker. Has never gotten in trouble in school before, and not for anything serious at home.)

                classes and then report to the office for recess, music, art, etc. to me, that's more of a "punishment" then sitting at home and watching cartoons. also, more of a stigma.
