He may have learned some things, he keeps telling me he has learnt so much, but certainly do not include engaging his brain in that list!!! Engaging it before he speaks, before he comes out with those statements, comments or questions is just something he has not mastered yet!
Take last friday.
The boy asked permission to be able to watch the rugby and in doing so would either be late online to chat or wouldn’t be there at all. Fine, I said that was perfectly ok as I had plans for the evening anyway. I did tell him to expect something out of the ordinary and that it would make his rugby experience far more interesting.
Was he hell!
Except he doesn’t!
