My kids are always on their best behavior in restaurants. I don't know why that is. I think we got lucky with that one.

Oh, and the reason we consider destruction of property as hurtful is 1) because we want our kids to have the overall message that their living space is kind of like a person, too. That might sound weird to some people...but I just want them to respect the planet because it needs to be here for them and their kids in the long run . . . so part of teaching that message begins at home and 2) some people really care about their property and so it hurts PEOPLE when their property is ruined, and anything that hurts others is something we try to avoid.
