You do not want to know how my husband managed to solve that dilemma in an hour. Ill just say it was all legal.
Is it any surprise as to why these kids cannot act as adults? Their parents keep rescuing them.
Bingo. And in this case, it wasn't even their own child to whom they were incapable of saying, "Well, I'm sorry. You'll just have to miss the trip."
“Is it any surprise as to why these kids cannot act as adults? Their parents keep rescuing them.”
Exactly! I see so many of my friends and co-workers whose lives are harder than they need to be, because they had “bailout” parents and never learned to take care of themselves.
The sad thing is that they are raising their own kids the same way.
Parents may choose to be there to help their children somewhat if they really end up in a tight spot, but they should not smooth over every little real or perceived bump in the road.
I remember when I moved out of my parents’ house. They told me, “Anyone can end up in a bad situation, and if you do, let us know. We will take you back - ONCE.” I learned to fix my own problems so I never had to cash in that ticket.
Yeah, I know, when I read it I was thinking, “Why didn’t the dad make the SON contact the eye doctor and take care of it?” That’s what my folks would have done, I think.
