Six-year-old: Can I eat this lollipop?
Parent: Where’d you get it?
Parent: They gave out lollipops?
Six-year-old: ’Cause we were good.
Parent: What do you mean, good?
Six-year-old: Being quiet.
Unfortunately, this scene has been a common occurrence at our school this year. Not everyone gets the lollipop, by the way -- only the ones who are “good.”
