My co-worker told me this story about her grandson this week and I told her that I had to share it today..
Her grandson is around the same age as my kids and attends a church summer camp. One day last week he got in trouble for fighting and was told that id it happened again he couldn’t returen. When he got home his dad gave him two choices for a punishment 1- he could go running 2- he could get a whoppin.
He choose to go running, his dad made him run three miles, and every time he tried to quit he wouldn’t let him, as the dad was running right there with him. When he got home he told his mom that he’d made the wrong choice and next time he will take the whoppin as it is over and done with faster.
