"You know how I always say that 'obedience is not a virtue?' Well as far as I can tell I'm doing a really good job of getting that point across to my kids."
It was something like that. And I'm glad I said it, because we all chuckled and in that moment, I remembered really WHY I do not want to train up my children to obey me.
This is a good thing. Sometimes I need a little reminder because this is a difficult principle to stick to sometimes.
But really--I don't want trained up automatons or mindless drones. Not really. Right?
No, not really.
And so I'm very glad that there is NOT A CHANCE IN HELL that I will end up with any of those obedient types.
NOT. A. CHANCE.
