- Names of the parents have been changed in order to protect the RIGHT parent
- Child has been ill for about a week and just started back to school, he's wearing a lightweight jacket instead of a warm winter coat
- Parent B is now ill and could care less
This mornings conversation:
Parent A: Child get a warmer coat on. It's freezing outside and you've been sick.
Child: I'm only walking from the house to the car and then from the car to the school building. Besides I can wear my jacket all day long if I want to.
Parent A: I don't care, it's freezing cold outside and you've been sick. Get a warmer coat on. ( I think Parent A is assuming the Child didn't hear this the first time.)
At this point, Parent B who I remind you is very ill and could care less, pipes in with: Oh, let him wear his jacket...So what if he gets sick again...it's his choice, he can pay the consequences!
be sure to watch video before going on...it's only 43 seconds long
Just when I think I have it altogether, someone drops the ball and I have to start all over again!
Optional quiz. Am I (the Mother) Parent A or Parent B?
