I offered stiff resistance to this regimen, but in response to every strategy I concocted…she would patiently repeat her most powerful defense: ‘This is no picnic for me either, buster.'” Whatyousay.com thinks this little story from the life of America’s 44th President can be put to good use by parents today.
