My mother has always told me children don’t come with a manual, so this really made me chuckle today.
To quote my father:
“When all else fails, read the instructions. “
The same teacher who had once referred to my “idiosyncrasies” had once taught us an important lesson about following instructions:
Avoid Failure and Follow The Instructions As Provided by Solomon Wilson
I have done a very similar exercise with my own children. 😆
