Last night I placed my son on punishment. Originally he wasn't allowed to go outside today but I let him go w/me. While at the pool he spotted his friends playing but he couldn't join. I'm sure he's asking himself "why didn't I just obey my parents......" I bet he's anticipating the day when he can go play again.
