Your eleven year old son, Peter, was running late to school and so he skipped his breakfast. By lunch time, he was extra hungry and wanted an additional milk. He did not have money for the additional milk as he had spent his extra lunch money on a second roll. Peter steals a milk while the cafeteria attendant is not watching (so he thinks.) He was seen and reported to the principal. The principal calls Peter in to discuss the stolen milk. Peter tells the principal he stole the milk because he was extra hungry and was out of money. Peter then further enhances his story. He tells the principal that you have lost your job and that there is no food in the house and no money and so he had to go without breakfast. Considering the circumstances, Peter is not punished but given a warning. The principal tells Peter that he can always ask her if he is hungry and she will make sure he gets something to eat. Peter goes back to class happy in his "victory."
You get a call from the principal later in the day. She is cordial and tells you that she has heard about your misfortune but has referred your family to the parent organization. She says, "Don't be embarrassed, they are here to help in hard times like these." She further tells you that a food basket will be delivered to your home that evening. You are confused and ask for an explanation and so the principal relates Peter's stolen milk incident. Right now you are speechless.
What do you tell the principal? What happens when Peter gets home?
