Do you stick your head in the sand to avoid confrontation?
Do you pretend that everything is okay, so you won’t have to face it?
When my daughter was in the 8th grade, she and her girlfriend would take the little boat out on the lake. I wondered what brought this about so suddenly. I asked her if she was smoking out there. And if she was, she needed to tell me right now, because I don’t want to hear it from someone in our small community. I also told her if this is something she thinks she needs to do, then she should feel free to do it in front of me or don’t do it at all. She didn’t go out on the lake anymore, she didn’t do it in front of me, So I ask her what’s up. She said, well mom, I didn’t really like it, and now it is no fun anymore because you found out. Confrontation doesn’t bother me.
