Mom — Boys, you realize that because I decided to only let you do homework for a half hour today, and you didn’t finish all your homework, Miss Teacher may decide to take away some privileges.
R — Are you going to send her a note?
Mom — Yes. I will explain that I think 2 hours of homework is too long.
R — I know! Then we wouldn’t even have time to play!
Mom — Well, if Miss Teacher says there is some punishment involved for not doing all your homework, I want you to remember that we made the decision and we’ll have to take the consequences.
R — Okay.
B — It’s okay. We can take it.
