REALLY?? normal?? Not so much in my world. If my child had done that, she would have been marched back to the appropriate house(s) carrying the pumpkin(s) and made to apologize, plus the punishment from me and her dad.

I think what Addie meant was they were no more perfect than anyone else's children. They had their weeknesses just like everyone else.

Two reasons why I didn't march my kids back. One, because they were with a bunch of other kids. Who stole what?

Second reason, I never shamed my kids in public. The matter was taken care of in the home all the time. My family business staid in the home. The one time I did shame one of my kids, still haunts me to this day.

One time my granddaughter was caught shoplifting. I had to go pick her up. When we left the store, she was sobbing. I never said a word to her. When we got home I asked her if she was wondering why I didn't yell at her. My answer to her was, "because could you have felt any worse if I started to yell at you in public than you did when you saw me?" Of course her answer was "no'. She knew she had disappointed me. And that is what hurt her more than anything I could say to her. And I certainly wasn't going to berate her in the store in front of total strangers. I always tried to remember, "Children have feelings too."
