ConfusedDisapproveWhy bother making a commercial like this? After watching it, I'm just not 'feelin' pizza'...maybe leading the little ones out to a big oak tree where I can tie them up and hose them down.

Christ! I would divorce that family if my kids acted like that! Angry
 
Their pies are pretty tasty.
 
But Murphy's Law?  I know, everybody should know this.
 
Murphy's law is an adage or epigram that is typically stated as: Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong.

Yea.  Not sure why they get rewarded for being little a$$holes.

Love the pizza.

In the commercial, I do not recall seeing the children actually eat. Would be a little more believable if there were some empty beer bottles laying around...

Why didn't I see them getting spanked?  Surely they're old enough to understand a good spanking.

I've been told that spanking is child abuse these days.  Dunno because I don't have any of my own.  You're supposed to try and talk to and reason with them, to make them understand, logically, why their behavior is less than desirable.  The use of 5 minute time outs is strongly encouraged.

At least that's what I've been told.

The connection:  Murphy's Law - "Papa Murphy" is tenuous at best.
 
Frankly, I don't get it.  Confused
 
Also, I don't believe the pizzas are made "from scratch" (whatever that "really" means?).
Nor do I necessarily believe that cheese from a block tastes any different than cheese from a bag.
 
The pizza itself comes wrapped in cardboard.
Draw your own conclusions.

You can be crueller than spanking them by taking away their video games and electronic devices (probably considered actual child abuse in several nanny states.)  Kid still giving you lip afterward?  Smash the cell phone with a hammer.  You're the parent and you damn well paid for it anyway, so it's yours to destroy...  LOL

I read somewhere that spanking with a hand is not considered child abuse. Only spanking with a tool is considered child abuse(belt, shoe, cable cord, whip, etc)
Using nuclear weapons on problem people is not the answer, you psychopath!

Also, Keith Richards is a damn cockroach outliving everybody! LOL

What I've observed is that reasoning with a kid just teaches them to reason right back.  Then it becomes a battle of the wills, and the kid starts seeing you as an equal.

The best thing to do with kids if they start becoming incorrigible and impossible to control is just turn them over to the state then walk away and forget about them.

Let them become someone else's problem, then go out and adopt new kids who'll appreciate you.

After awhile, take pictures of yourselves with your new kids having fun somewhere and mail them to your old kids on their birthdays.

Sign them "Having a wonderful time without you, so rot in hell, you nasty little bastards".

That ought to get the message across to them that you're through messing around.

Problem solved!!!

I've tried Papa Murphy's a couple times. Baking in my conventional oven resulted in slightly soggy crust. They are the only take and bake pizza store I know of that doesn't offer baking your pie for a small fee.

100% correct. I will add. Wanting to be your child's best friend instead of their parent.

That makes a hell of a lot more sense than reasoning with something that's brain hasn't completely formed yet.

It was explained to me as what is perceived is important.  If someone even thinks that you're abusing your children, they can report you to DCFS and make your life hell.  So if someone sees you spank your child in public and then reports you, the burden is on you to prove that you are not abusing your children.  And if your kid says something to a teacher about being spanked, same thing.  Some teachers wouldn't think twice about it.  Others?  You just don't know.

Again, not my idea on the subject.  Just what I've been told by parents that I know.  Raising children is different now.

LOLI seriously doubt many took this (for the most part) seriously, much less understand that was once an acceptable practice (I think you can still do it in NebraskaConfused).

Naw, you've got to threaten to give them to circus people:  "They'll send some clowns to get you when it gets dark.  And you'll be the newest addition to the freak show.  But they'll give you a nice animal cage to sleep in.  After you clean it out..."

If my family had acted like that., we would all be dead from starvation as I'd have been too tired to do anything about dinner.
