A Whenever your kids are out of control, you can take
comfort from the thought that even God's omnipotence
did not extend to God's kids. After creating heaven and earth,
God created Adam and Eve. And the first thing he said was:
"Don't".
"Don't what?" Adam replied.
"Don't eat the forbidden fruit," God said.
"Forbidden fruit? We got forbidden fruit? Hey, Eve...we got
forbidden fruit!"
"No way!"
"Yes way!"
"Don't eat that fruit!" said God.
"Why?"
"Because I am your Father and I said so!" said God (wondering why
he hadn't stopped after making the elephants).
A few minutes later God saw his kids having an apple break and was angry.
"Didn't I tell you not to eat the fruit?" the First Parent asked
"Uh huh, " Adam replied.
"Then why did you?"
"I dunno" Eve answered.
"She started it!" Adam said.
"Did not!"
"Did too!"
"DID NOT!!"
Having had it with the two of them, God's punishment was that Adam
and Eve should have children of their own, Thus the pattern was set and
it has never changed. However, there is reassurance in this story.
If you have persistently and lovingly tried to give them wisdom
and they have not taken it, do not be hard on yourself.
If God had trouble handling children, what makes you think it would be a piece of
cake for you?
 
Advice for the day: 
If you have a lot of tension and you get a headache,
do what it says on the aspirin bottle:
Take two and keep away from children.
