Because come hell or high waters, your kid is gonna do that or die.
Ah yes, I remember my mom being called to school when I was pretty young because I apparently used the nasty b* word. I can’t image and have no memory of it or the punishment that it carried. Honestly, knowing what I know now about how sheltered I really was, it is hard for me to believe too. Not hard to believe that I would do something wrong, just that word in that setting.
My mom said she told the school, “she wouldn’t do that, she doesn’t even know that word”.
Alas, my mom said “my kid wouldn’t ______________’”
And her kid did!
I don’t think I’ve been quite the parent to say my kid won’t do something but honestly, I never thought that this kid, the oldest kid, this particular kid would be doing this. Sure, I knew he was going to do it, I mean, we all have our vices but I wasn’t expecting him to get in trouble for this….alas…we handled it.
