Positive thinking isn't denial; it's the accurate realization that we don't know everything and therefore, ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE...

Conversation With a Pre-Teen

Christopher: Mom, can I have a cell phone?

Mom (me): Why do you need a cell phone?

Christopher: "cause everyone else has one

Mom (me): How Many is "everyone"?

Christopher: Like, 20

Mom (me): that is not everyone

Christopher: c'mon

Mom (me): Well, i am not buying it, if you want it you need to do summer school to get your 100 dollars (our district has a summer camp for kids and they can earn up to a hundread dollars)

Christopher: You promised me I did not have to go to summer school.

Mom (me): you don't..but if you want a cell phone you have to buy it yourself

Christopher: Well, Why do you have one?

Mom (me): In case I go out and have car problems, or if I am not home and you are at school and they can get a hold of me.

Christopher: When you were a kid how old where you when you got a cell phone?

Mom (me): FIRST OFF, THEY DID NOT HAVE CELL PHONES WHEN I WAS A KID..secondly I just got one 2 years ago, Besides you can't use your phone at school, they will take it away. who are you going to call?

Christopher: well, when I get home I can use it.

Mom (me): Christopher, it will cost you a dollar just to use it, and if they don't have an AT&T cell phone it will cost you a 1$ for every 10 minutes, just use the home phone to call your friends.

Christopher: Uh, well, what if you forgot your cell phone and you had car problems ..and uh, and I was with you, you could use mine...

Mom (me): Christopher..if you want a cell phone YOU BUY IT

Christopher: BUT MOM..UH

Mom (me): That is it..I am done...Go
