That's very true. My children have been sneaking into a field next to the park and ending up miles away....I'm not too happy with DS doing this, but have also found out that DD goes and then will have a falling out with her friend who will storm off and leave her on her own. I thought I should explain a few things but she just did a bit of dramatic crying and then in the next breath asked if she could watch the tv.
DS2 told her to take this big boy we know with her because he'll be able " to punch someone to the ground "
I asked him if he really thought a 10 year old would be able to take down a big man, look at Daddy I said , for example , who flexed his muscles in reply...yes, I think so DS said
I left the room quickly as DH started swinging DS around by his ankles in a further reply
, but you're right Fran , they think they're invincible !
