Jean and I have a strong-willed boy. Over the years, we've joked that we were raising a lawyer-in-training. He could find a loophole in anything.
Once, Jean hosted a women's tea and set out chocolates in the living room. She later discovered half the bowl was gone. When she asked him if he'd eaten all the chocolates, our son responded, “No,” without hesitation.
“You didn't eat the chocolates?”
“Oh, I ate some of them. But you asked if I had eaten all of them.”
If you've got a strong-willed child, you've probably encountered situations like that.
