A while ago I went into Alec's room after he had gone to school.
Propped up on his bed was his journal.
It contained a freshly written entry and was left open.

I did as any mother would the entry.
This was not a loving entry.
Alec explained how he was a good kid, how he had waited
for a year and a half for a certain video game and how
we still were not allowing him to get it.
He was even willing to use his own money.
It is great that he can express himself and point out all the
reasons why he should be able to get the video game.
I love it when kids can reason and fight their own defense.
The hard part is being the parent and making the hard decisions
and sticking to them.
