First lesson

My ten years old son was arguing with his mum about the reasons for changing his T-shirt.

I stepped in and gave him the first father to son lesson: I advised him to choose his battles in life. “Sometimes we need to forgo some fights to win others” I said and thoroughly explained!!

His eyes brightened as he fully appreciated my sincere advice.

I omitted the fact that, I have rarely won an argument with my wife or any other women. I deliberately did not want him to know. I felt he was too young to loose hope.

I raise my kids on need to know basis. He will learn in time
