When my daughters were growing up, the rule was: “If you go out, stay out!”
I had my own
selfish reasons for not wanting to get them all bundled up only to hear them trying to break through the locked front door because they were cold, had to pee, or because it was dark and the street lights were now on.
My defense (as the mother of grown children) is simple: They turned out fine.
My defense has been strengthened; little did I know just how good it was for them to “Get out!”
So, send the kids outside.
Go with them if you’re a really good mom.
