Never say that I don’t admit it when Barack Obama has a good idea.

This strategy works for me:

“What we’ve said to the girls is, ‘If you guys ever decided you’re going to get a tattoo, then mommy and me will get the exact same tattoo in the same place. And we’ll go on YouTube and show it off as a family tattoo,” Obama said. “And our thinking is that might dissuade them from thinking that somehow that’s a good way to rebel.”

I may steal this.

PS: I will not say a word if/when my adult children decide to get a tattoo.  Neither am I criticizing the idea of tattoos: it comes under the broad category of A perfectly reasonable thing/activity/concept, for other people. I am merely exercising my parental rights to nix the idea for my minor children.

  1. I’m not sure what it says about me that when I read this, my first reaction was to check my bank account to see whether I had enough money handy to facilitate any and all of Malia’s and Sasha’s wildest tattooing proclivities.

    1. That you pay attention.
      heh. The thought of Obama with a tramp stamp would be funny if he wasn’t POTUS.

  2. Then there was my mom’s approach to me.
    “Mom, I was thinking of getting a ta-”
    “Do it and I’ll shave it off of you with a butter knife.”
    Pretty much ended the conversation.
