#57: Exaggeration Is the Name of the Game
Have you ever listened to a five-year-old tell a story? It makes sense at first, but then suddenly, there is a flying squirrel hanging out with Captain America in their backyard. Yes, it’s like that all the time, and it goes both ways. Even a sub hears crazy stories about what happens at home.
Thankfully, it’s pretty easy to weed out the truth if you keep your head on straight. No, Miss Jenkins did not make everyone do 57 laps around the blacktop for Jody talking in class. Either it didn’t happen, or it was five laps. Just use your best judgment when talking with your kid. Or any kid.
