One Step Forward Six Steps Back

I wrote the other day about the great conversation I had with my son. This broke up a string of screamers. The good will lasted four days. Saturday night was another 10 rounder. Usual suspects. Grades. What they were, what they could be. How a little more studying and a little less play could bridge the gap.

Or from his perspective how everything was OK, under control. My expectations were too high. Everyone else does what he does. I am too serious and need to lighten up.

Its all in the perspective.
