This morning I wasn't home to send difficult child out the door. He left without wearing a coat. It was about 30 degrees. He called me about 45 minutes after he leaves asking me to bring him a coat. I told him I wasn't coming to town, that I had my hands full and wouldn't be bringing him a coat I told him if he was cold he should work a little harder. He called me a couple more times and got the same answer. I posted on Facebook that natural consequences were kicking in and explained what was going on. A few friends posted positive things. We even got into a discussion of how it's always mom's fault. Anyway, my mom posts to be careful or I'd set him off. and my dad posts to think carefully if I wasn't home when he left I certainly wasn't in town for him. They don't seem to get it. He's 18. It was above 0. He's lived in MN his entire life and should know that November in MN means you wear a coat. I know when I was a kid there is no way I could have gotten away with calling for a coat (or anything) and expecting it to be brought, and yet my parents think I should drop everything and drive 15 miles (round trip) to take a coat to an 18 year old man. He wasn't going to be hurt by being a little cold. And I'd be willing to bet he won't leave without his coat again.
