case #1 : one child, we will call her larcy, couldn't find a ring. immediatly another child, we will call her bydney, said, "o, i took that from your drawer!". did she tell the truth? or did she she steal? or both? "i am really proud of you for telling us! now go sit on the stairs, i am really disappointed."
case #2 : one child, we will call him weric, needed to go to the bathroom. he hurried in, very interested in making good time to the toilet. bydney was standing in the bathtub (fully clothed- another story) and refused to leave. weric really had to go, but couldn't because his sister was standing right there. he yelled and screamed, but she still wouldn't go. so in his desperate situation, he did the only thing he could think of to influence her: he punched her right in the gut. it knocked the wind right out of her and she came gasping and howling injustice.
who gets in trouble?
i keep threatening to cut colin in half, but no one is listening to me...
