First day of school can be exciting but can also be a source of stress for a kid. It is expected that first days are opportunity to talk about your summer vacation. Not all kids are fortunate enough to have that chance with their family. Sometimes, it may not be as extravagant, what’s overlooked is the fact that over chaos, family remains intact. No matter how things can get too crazy sometimes, you still go home to the same family and believe it or not, “NO” have never been an option (no matter how much you resist it at first).
When they say, Mom knows everything. When you’re a kid you always felt like they don’t. There would be days they would insist to be around but for some reason their presence could sort of embarrass you. You don’t get it sometimes when they try to discipline you, like say, “never lie” yet you’d see them do it the other way around.
Dads are neutral. They can be either a pro or a con.
Younger siblings are the untouchables in front of the parents. Big brothers on the other hand are naturally born bully.
As kids we tend to ask too much basically because when you were still a kid, you always don’t know. You just knew how to be a kid. You just knew your only agenda for the day and the day after that is to have fun and you’re only worry is when you’re in trouble; afraid your parents will scold you.
These are silly realities. All these realizations are creatively put together once again in the second book of the series, diary of a wimpy kid: Rodrick Rules and it’s hilarious!
