Mom had a doctor appointment and no babysitter.
So John got an opportunity.
An hour or so cooling his heels in the doctor’s waiting room.
I set the WiFi on his iPad and waved goodbye.
I didn’t hear anything.
I didn’t ask.
I didn’t worry.
I tried not to think about it.
At the end of the hour, no one had died or screamed.
One of the massively awesome components of ever-greater expectations combined with relentless interventions and held boundaries
is that it works.
I swear to God with my hand on the Bible, it works.
Try this with your kids.
Peace be with us,
