He felt her press something firmly into his open palm, while his arm still hung limply at his side. It was a small plastic condom secured neatly in a protective case. Suddenly his binders slipped from his other hand, scattering on the ground at his feet as he gasped amazed at her suggestion. This was more than he figured he would ever have happen, no matter how much he longed for it to occur.
If you want something a bit more laid back and perhaps a bit more inexpensive, you can always go camping. There are a few different ways to go about this. You do not have to pitch tents and cook over a campfire if you do not want to, though that is certainly an option. There are campgrounds everywhere, and some have cabins for rent that make camping a bit easier while still having the great experience of being outdoors and spending time together as family. Some companies offer RV rentals, which can be great as well. These options can be the most relaxing choices for summer family vacations.
If you’re starting to feel overwhelmed – like it’s all just too much – speak up. Your mom or dad can help you put some balance in your schedule. It may mean cutting out some activities so you have more free time.
As a parent set a good example and don’t smoke. Remember the chances of your child lighting up greatly diminish if the parents or care-givers are non-smokers.
You rationalized by telling yourself that it’s okay because after all you have the whole REST Of the YEAR to get it right. Then a couple of days later the whole scenario played out again. Not too mention that the exercise program you had started the week before just did not quite fit into the schedule this week. Just too much going on. Work, household chores, after-school activities, church activities, you name it. You’re just too busy All the time.
You race out of the driveway and down the road, only to come to a complete stop because of traffic. What seems like hours later, you drop your child off at school with a quick wave and either scramble to get to work on time or speed to the grocery store to start your list of errands for the day. Whew! It’s only nine o’clock in the morning and you’ve already spent a lot of time, energy, and gas performing your daily routine.
“Come on.don’t you want to do this? I promise I won’t tell any of the others. We can just have some fun and no one would know!” Her voice now held the hint of sarcasm as her hands reached for his belt once more.
Spying should be done discreetly, follow your kids in your car, check the history on the computer, and request to meet their friends. It is only if you suspect your child to be in great danger that you should go through their things when they are not home. If children feel betrayed and state the old, “You went through my things! How could you!” you could let them know that this is still your house and that if they would come to talk to you, then you would not have had to go through their things. Be sure to let your child know you are doing this because you love them and are concerned about them. Let them know if they don’t talk to you that you have no other way of knowing what is going on.
