I had stayed away from the newspapers lately because each time I read, I have plenty to babble. Sometimes, I would verbally grumbled over it but has to explain the real situation to my older kids. And you know, it is not easy to be rational without getting anal over some of the issues.
It is hard being a parent because all those behaviours can and does influence them. I guess I can’t tell my 10 and 14 years old to “Stop acting like a kid.” when they are going for tit-for-tat. Now, I must shout loud, loud, ‘YOU TWO, STOP ACTING LIKE A BUNCH OF POLITICIANS, WILL YA?”
This is re the “you block five foot way with racks of breads at your sundry shop, so you cannot talk about people building mansion without proper building permit.”
