I took the pictures AFTER the event.
I was in my room – this is a few years ago – sitting at my desk, talking on the phone. My son, who was about 11 years old at the time and was in primary school , must have been trying to get my attention to talk to me, as he – suddenly, to me – pushed a sheet of paper in my view. He had written down what he wanted to say.
And then another sheet:
YOU ARE ON THE PHONE FOR AN HOUR NOW
I didn’t realize…
And then slipping in the blow:
I AM NOT GOING TO ROWING PRACTICE
He had thought about it.
An example of practical discipline in daily life
