“Nobody writes a book on the correct way of parenting,” Sharron Dobbins explained to ABC 15 Arizona this week, shortly after her release from jail on a felony child abuse charge.
It’s true — there is no instruction manual for raising two teenage sons. But as Dobbins, 40, told a reporter on her Phoenix front lawn, she had certain parental tips and tricks.
She had the Bible, for example, and the verse she recited often to her sons: “Honor thy mother and father, or their days will be shortened.”
And on a particularly frustrating Easter Sunday morning, as she tried to get the 17-year-old ready for church, she had her Taser handy, too.
