My daughter is studying post WWII – Truman Doctrine, Marshall Plan, NATO, etc. I needed to explain it to her in terms that made sense.
1. The Daddy Doctrine states that I must not let her sneak out of the house. I asked if she would, she said – depends.
2. I said the Daddy plan is that if she sneaks out she’ll be grounded for three months. Ah, that made the point.
3. I then said that I formed the PUTO (Parental Unit Treaty Organization) and that if she broke the Daddy Plan, that Mom would back me up.
I think she now understands it better.
