To my children…the WHY generation,
You constantly challenge and question my authority.
You never accept that NO is the final answer.
Even when I’ve said it repeatedly.
Instead of responding the way well brought up kids would with “OK” or the like, you want to know “WHY”.
Save that question for your teachers. They can answer “Why” until they run out of answers.
I’m not your teacher.
I don’t have to respond.
To my word there is only one answer…
AND THAT…IS WHY.
It comes with a guarantee…
Non-negotiable…because I’ve already thought about it and decided NO was the answer.
I don’t ask a lot from you.
I don’t tell you no all that often.
I am SICK and TIRED of my answer being met with obstinate belligerence and defiance.
I love you all.
You are the kids.
I am the parent.
Tough shit for you.
No means no.
And shut up about it already.
Or face the embarrassing consequences.
