I just had a very interesting thing happen… 

I have been hanging out with my son all afternoon.  He has been very well behaved yet I keep having to  correct things like “yea.” and turn them into “yes.” or preferably “yes, Daddy.”

This has been going on for hours as you can imagine… 

I just now helped him change into his KARATE UNIFORM… 

He insisted on tying his belt because that is what he wants to be able to do to earn his merit badge.  After a little coaching from me he did it!  I then said, “Awesome…  good job buddy.” and gave him a high five.  For which he ENTHUSIASTICALLY replied, “Thank you, sir!”

I was shocked.  It was a complete turn around from how he had been replying all afternoon. 

What was the only difference? 

The Karate Uniform…

Amazing.

Respectfully,

Master Dan
