As my three boys get older, they become more responsible and they make a lot more of their decisions, however I make it a choice to not to get involved in their personal choices unless it’s one hundred percent necessary.
- The other week, I arrived home to find a massive box standing on our doorstep and I studied that it was for our daughter.
I couldn’t come up with anything that our daughter possibly needed that was that large, but they were that happy about it when she got home. I asked her what she ordered, and she told me that it was a portable air conditioner. I didn’t suppose I heard her right because an air conditioner seemed to care about a specific appliance for our teenage daughter to be buying. I try not to micromanage what she spends her currency on, however it was irregular because I had never heard her complain about the temperature in years prior. I asked her why she purchased a portable air conditioner and she gave me an even more different answer, but according to her, whenever she had sleepovers with her friends, they were consistently complaining about the temperature of the house. I didn’t suppose there was anything not going well with the temperature, however her friends seemed to suppose so, however my daughter knew better than to touch the thermostat settings, so she had to get creative. This is what led her to buying a portable A/C system. I hate that she spent her money on this to please her friends, however I was cheerful that she took the responsibility upon herself and she didn’t change the thermostat settings.
