I was honestly not prepared to be a parent when our first child came into the world. I wanted kids my entire life plus was thrilled to be a father, however it was blatant that I had so much to learn in such a small amount of time. There were increasing demands at my place of work, all the while my wifey is still struggling to recover from pregnancy plus needs my help around the clock. I started to wonder if I was a failure plus if I would ever improve plus figure out how to navigate all of these crazy life scenarios. Happily for me, time healed these massive wounds plus I slowly adjusted to being a good father. Now our kids are becoming much older. I really love them to death, however they don’t regularly follow rules around the household, especially if they’re trying to play games. One of the things I struggled with from the beginning was either of them randomly would open windows around the household. This wouldn’t be such a massive deal if it wasn’t happening in the worst Summer heatwaves where the cooling device was barely keeping up with demand. An open window for merely 20 minutes is enough to let out a huge amount of conditioned air. But it’s not just the windows, they also touch the HVAC temperature control machine despite being forbidden to go anywhere near it. After regularly ignoring my requests, I put a plastic lock box over the temperature control unit. I put child safety locks on all of the windows on top of that. Occasionally despite your best efforts plus intentions, your children will simply refuse to follow the guidelines you have in place.
