I know. It’s hard to believe for some of you, but Adam does get into trouble. This evening I had to take Adam’s TV privileges away. That’s what we parents like to say. I had to take the little devil’s TV. He had it coming and I had to deliver. Parents are like the post office that way. Neither tears nor sympathy nor full throttle tantrum shall keep us from our appointed role.
Saying I “had to do it,” is anesthesia for the conscience.
I take that back. Saying is not believing. You have to believe it. Your sanity depends on it.
Anyhoo, I took his TV away.
Adam apparently is an attorney in waiting. He’s following the letter of my ruling – if not the spirit.
He’s watching Netflix on his iPod.
