MY MOMAt one point in a child’s life this phrase will come out of their mouths. Most parents will concur that their only trying to do what they think is best for the child. As with this young girl who devises a plan to run away and have her parents thrown in jail. Until reality sets in and she soon discovers who will fix dinner? Who will read her a story? Who will give her a kiss at night and make her feel secure? Not her parents if both are in jail and then her life would be ruined for sure. At the end, she realizes that her parents are doing what parents do out of love.
