Little Stinker

“To persist
In doing wrong extenuates not wrong,
But makes it much more heavy.”  – Troilus and Cressida

My kid has entered what I’m calling his “little stinker” phase.  Every day when I pick him up from school I’m inevitably told that he pulled some little girl’s hair, or called a classmate dirty.  Sigh.  We’ve tried telling him not to do it. We’ve taken away his desserts and movie time.  We’ve even sent him to bed early.  Yet he persists in this stinker phase and it’s making me tired.  I sure hope he grows out of it soon.  I’m sure his female classmates do as well.

“Harsh rage,
Defect of manners, want of government,
Pride, haughtiness, opinion, and disdain,
The least of which haunting a nobleman
Loseth men’s hearts.”  – Henry IV

Let me just add:  idiots.
