now, that's parenting
Five year old D. had a friend, N. over to play yesterday evening. For a while, I was alone in the house with them.
They were playing upstairs, when I heard a loud, "Thump!"
Me: "Are you boys OK up there?"
D. and N. (in unison): "Don't come up!"
Me: "If I come up, will I get mad?"
N.: "You'll get mad!"
So, I waited five minutes and then I went upstairs. All evidence of whatever had happened had been cleaned up. The boys were playing quietly.
This is clearly an example of how what I don't know can't hurt me.
