After our difficult child set the garage on fire (accidentally, while playing with gas & a lighter) last Saturday, our Fire Marshall instructed husband to place difficult child in their 'Firebug' course. How normal is it for boys to play with fire? husband apparently did something similar when he was a kid, so to him, it's no big deal (other than the $2-3000 damage to the garage, and me losing my mind. again.) Nobody was hurt, it was only stuff, difficult child scared the stuffing out of himself and learned his lesson. Thank G_d we've got insurance! I've never done it, but I've never been around boys much, either.
