One Direction Are Good For Education

Would you believe it? One Direction are actually good for education. At least, one Australian mother showed that they can be used for educational purposes. If you extend her principle, the same can be said about Justin Bieber and several other young teenage celebrities.If you are parents, read on and learn. I found it most instructive.

One Direction

One Direction, that is Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan, and Zayn Malik are due for a concert in Sidney on October 25, 2013. Tickets were, as usual, sold out in hours; lucky you if you got hold of one. Right now, though, you can get four - for a price. They have been put up by a local mother showing that grounding is sometimes not enough if you are dealing with unruly teenagers.

She had bought the four tickets for her daughter and her friends, but rescinded on the promise after finding out that the girls had used the sleep-over excuse to spend the night partying at an older boys home. Mother was not impressed and found grounding not to be adequate to express her extreme displeasure. She put the tickets on Ebay; have a go if you want them or think you have earned the privilege to attend. And to make it clear, none of the boys from One Direction was in any way involved in the sleep-over.

What I admire most about this mother is that she doesn't just say, threaten, or talk. She does. If you have children to bring up, take her as an example on how you do it. I have added some of the text from her auction.

Quote: THIS AUCTION IS FOR ALL 4 ONE DIRECTION TICKETS IN SYDNEY OCTOBER 25th. You can thank my daughters self righteous and lippy attitude for their sale. See sweety? And you thought I was bluffing. I hope the scowl on your bitchy little friends faces when you tell them that your dad and i revoked the gift we were giving you all reminds you that your PARENTS are the ones that deserve love and respect more than anyone. And your silly little pack mentality of taking your parents for fools is one sadly mistaken. Anyhow. Your loss someone else's gain who deserves them! THE TICKETS ARE SEATED IN ROW O section 57. REMEMBER AUCTION IS FOR ALL 4 TICKETS and will be sent registered post

...OH YOUR FRIENDS THOUGHT THAT A FEW PRANKS CALLS WOULD PUT ME OFF SELLING THE GIFT WE BOUGHT FOR THEM for YOUR BIRTHDAY because YOU all LIED to us about sleep overs so you could hang like little trollops at an older guys HOUSE????? Pffft!! I find it HIGHLY amusing that you girls think you invented this stuff. Tricks like this on OUR parents is how HALF of you were conceived .....And why a lot of your friends DONT have an address to send that Fathers day card to!!! I'm not your friend. I'm your MOTHER. And I am here to give you the boundaries that YOU NEED to become a functional responsible adult. You may hate me now..... But I don't care. Its my job to raise a responsible adult..not nuture bad habits in my teen age child. Unquote.
