Default Minor Vent

Dcd picks up once or twice a week and whenever I mention rest time and dcb falling asleep, I get the "Great, now he'll never go to bed tonight." Every. Time. So now it's like I make a point to mention his son was the first to fall asleep and he makes a point to let me know they apparently can't take control of bedtime in their home 🤷

"He had a good day. Here is his free art. Have a great night." Unless asked a question specifically, minimal information makes for a peaceful departure.

I save the rest for conferences.

Yep, agree with CH. The more you tell, the more they can pick apart, manipulate or become passive-aggressive about.
