Going crazy!!!

    So my wife and I want to take my nephews to a fun outdoor place this weekend! But wait...!!!...their dad won't let them go. Why? Because the oldest (about 9) is a new "unbaptised publisher" and his dad wants him to "get some time in". What a Jerk!

    I am going to try to get him (dumb dad) to cave, and tell him how much his sons will appreciate creation, and the beautiful outdoors. What's 2 more hrs on a time slip anyway?...meaningless statistics that will be forgotten. The Dad won't be going out anyway, he works most saturdays! If he can't have fun, don't want the two boys to have fun....idiot!

    (sorry, just needed to vent a bit)

    I feel badly for the kids and make this prediction (from personal experience): Take away all the fun and when the kids become young adults they will rebel in ways the parents couldn't imagine. They may even leave da truff. I did.

    good point. I know many who have left "the truth" because their parents were so over the top hard core. 99% service and meetings and 1% fun = "bye bye"
