    I’m sorry, but I just couldn’t take the homie seriously every time he has to climb up those ridiculous chairs. Can’t they get these people a normal chair and not make them look like a bunch of 2 year old!?

    They don't need reality checks they need discipline . May seem harsh to hit yo kids but it's better for them not to do stupid stuff before they get whacked in real life . Better the parents do the smacking then the kid getting shot for being something he's not
