I was asked yesterday, "What was your mission for writing Bart?"
Heck I never know what makes me do anything because I never slow down enough to think about it. I am down right impulsive!
But there was a motive subconsciously when I wrote Bart.
My kids were always wanting some sort of pet growing up.I squashed the idea at first but then realized that having to care for a pet teaches responsibility.
At first the boys were very attentive caring for the animal, then over a few weeks the novelty wore off and the care started to suffer.
That is when "Mom the Enforcer" needed to come to the pet's rescue.
I remember the first time I called them back in to attend to their charge. "Mom, why can't you just feed Skippy? Just this one time?"
It is tempting to give in and feed the poor animal. Resist-I say- resist! Insisting that the children care for their own pet is an excellent way to build their own self esteem and they will be proud of the job they did in the end.
