Where: My house
When: this moring
Who: me and teen
Son: Ma, Im sick. I can't go to school today.
Mother: What's wrong?
(Son steps into mother's room to reveal slightly puffy eyes.)
(Mother peers at son's face.)
Mother: Uh hu, so what's wrong?
Son: I'm sick. Look at my eyes.
Mother: Ok. So what's wrong?
Son: Ma, come on. You can't make me go to school today.
Mother: Why not? What's wrong?
(Son becomes agitated.)
Son: Ma! Really? You're going to make me go to school like this? (pointing at face) My nose is clogged up. I can't breath, and my eyes are running!
Mother: Take your allergy medicine, get your clothes on, let's get ready to go. Your eyes are not red or runny, your nose needs to be blown, and then your breathing will be fine. Now brush your teeth, wash your face and make sure your brother's up.
Son: Ma! that's not right! You can't make me go to school!
Mother: Ok, so, you want to stay home because you have tryouts after school and you don't want to go.
Son: That's not it. Look at me, I'm sick!
Mother: ...and you don't think you should have to try out because tryout's are a formality for you because you're already first string varsity. Plus you don't have school tomorrow and you want to have a two-day mini-vacation.
(Son looks blank and has nothing to say because he's been caught.)
Mother: Now get your clothes on and get ready. You have 25 minutes. Don't waste time. Let's go.

These are dark days people. If we let this teen trickery go by, when will it end? When will we stand up as one and put a stop to this behavior?! Are we going to wait until it's too late, and we're faced with lies regarding doing homework, getting off the computer when told, or eating vegetables! I say we have to do just what this mother in these transcripts did. We have to stand our ground! Catch the untruths and bring them to light.
Now who's with me?
...anybody?....hello....am I in this by myself?
