8. My parents dog died and I had to explain to my kids that David (Really was his name) passed away. Kids grew up with this dog always in their lives and were all really upset as expected. Except my youngest he said, “Wait, that’s sad, right?” Um yes, the correct emotional response here is sadness. He was 6. I keep an eye on that one.
9. When my kid and I walked passed this tae kwon do place, I’ve always tried to get her to sign up for, finally she says, “Yes, I’ll sign up.” We walk further down the street and she mumbles, “Then I can beat up Isabella.”
10. When she tried to strangle her sister and a couple weeks later lied to the school about her being abused, leading to a full blown investigation (later they discovered from her friends that she lied) while packing her things we discovered that she had been stealing opiates, and alcohol. She can’t live with us anymore to protect her younger sister.
