When Your Child Does Something Stupid: Try Curious Instead of Furious

My children have done things that make me feel furious.

Bryson, when he was a new driver, he had an 11:30 PM curfew.

Well, one night, very soon after he started driving, he didn’t get home until 1:00 AM

He did call us and say he was going to meet his brother Carson at In n Out.

and we were like,

“No, don’t do that. You need to come home.”

But he didn’t listen to us.

Of course our natural inclination was anger or frustration and really furious.
