I saw red.
I calmly pull the truck over and verbally lay into my son. Now, I know you all probably think I am just awful but honestly, I don’t care. See, this is how I see it. If I would have coddled my son at that moment, I would have done him great harm.
He needs me to be honest with him.
He needs me to tell him to suck it up and get over it.
And so I did.
