THE LONG VIEW

Go do your homework!

Aw Mom, why? They’ll just give us more tomorrow.

Yes, and next week, and next month, and then you’ll go into your final high school year. If you do your homework, you’ll get good marks to get into your chosen college – where they will give even more homework.

If you work hard there, you’ll get a good job when you graduate. Nobody gets anything without hard work.  It may look like a long, difficult journey, but it will be worth it in the end.

….You’ll be able to pay for a good retirement home for us.   😉

    Most parents these days would be grateful if the kid would only become independent and not return to the nest.

      I worked for a year, but then returned for 6 months. Back then, it didn’t occur to me to stay. There were no jobs in my home town, and my parents had already supported me for 18 years. I was only too eager to get out. 😯
