Let’s play, what would you do…
Your kids have been beating each other up all weekend long. You’re all sitting on the couch watching TV, the kids are fighting with each other (nothing new), you are overcome with tiredness and actually fall asleep on the couch.
When you wake up, the kids are no longer in the room, and the house is quiet. You:
a) Go upstairs and look for the blood trail. It can’t possibly be this quiet in the house without one of them killing the other.
b) Go back to sleep. Whatever the problem is (and you’re SURE there’s a problem somewhere!) you just don’t want to know.
