My dad used to ask me and my sister that question when we complained that "all of our friends are doing it, why can't we?" I'm sure it was something stupid like staying out late or wearing some ridiculous outfit, but I caught myself asking my son that the other day when he wanted to ride his bike across a busy street to meet up with some friends. He stared at me with a blank stare and answered yes, if all of my friends jumped off the bridge I would have to follow or I'd be left alone with no friends. Okay, not the answer I was expecting! I was hoping he would realize that he has to do what's best for him, but then again, he's 10!
