I wanted to share with everyone what happened with my children and niece today at their grandmother’s house. My mother-in-law who is in her mid 70′s heard the girls laughing in the bedroom. When she went to check on them, my niece was naked and ran under the bed, my daughter Katie was naked with her mouth opened, and my other daughter, Maria, was fully dressed holding cards in her hands. They had told their grandmother they were playing strip poker. My niece had informed her grandmother that she saw this game on Youtube.
Needless to say, my mother-in-law informed the girls that if she saw them doing this again they would get spanked with a wooden spoon. However, when I called her this afternoon, to check on the kids she was laughing about it. In addition, the girls were so upset that their parents were going to find out. The kids tried to plead with their grandmother not to say anything to their parents, however, grandma made no promises. So this afternoon, I got a phone call from Katie stating what they did and she was ready to accept any punishment we wanted to give them. My response to her was that your grandmother handled the situation perfectly and no more was going to be said. My sister-in-law also called me mortified that her daughter was showing my kids how to play strip poker. I just laughed and said we are family and that I am not to concerned and I thought her mother handled the situation very well.
Both my mother-in-law and I did discuss with the girls how inappropriate their game was and that they should not be showing their body parts to anyone except parents and their doctor if necessary.
