A Trotzkopf Production
Your daughter and son-in-law both work for the local railroad and both often have to work late hours or overnight. When this occurs, your ten year old grandson, Steven, spends the night with you. When Steven spends the night you always make sure he gets to school the next morning. In the past, Steven has faked being sick in order to convince you to let him stay home. The last time you watched Steven, he claimed to have a bad stomach ache and so you let him stay home from school. Steven later confessed that he was not sick but simply wanted to spend the day with you. You let the matter pass with only a stern lecture about honesty and a good education.
Steven spent the night with you again last night. This morning he calls out to you from the room he uses.
"I have a really bad headache. My head hurts so bad. Please don't make me go to school."
You know Steven has a major math test today but Steven also promised you the last time he faked being sick that it would never happen again. Steven does look like he doesn't feel well.
How do you respond to Steven's headache?
