Adventure on the Way Home
Today our son missed the bus from school to get home. And that is where the adventure began….. I was on the way to the bus stop to wait for the girls to get home when I got the call. My wife was a little concerned, so I called my son. My son in his usual way seemed quite relaxed with the situation. So Kim is at work, my son is at school and I cannot drive due to my operation…….
- What would you do?
- Would panic hit you as the parent?
- Would panic hit you are the child?
Well the story ended up all good. Our son walled to another bus stop and caught a public bus home. Thank goodness for iPhones. All the research as to the bus timetable was done on the iPhone. What did we do before iPhones? So late and a little more tired, our son ended up home….. And he viewed the whole saga as an adventure. I must admit that his view of the situation was pleasing. It is good to be able to turn what some would see as a negative experience into a positive experience. May be there are some lessons for us in the story. The key lessons I got from the story was maintain a cool head and when thing go wrong, look for a solution. Just like the old saying “When given Lemons, you can either get bitter or you can make Lemonade.”
- So what lessons did you take from this?
