Stop Fighting Over Mary and Jesus



It’s a good thing we didn’t go to chorus today, because we had a duck sharing conflict-resolution session that rivaled the mid-east peace treaties. The kids were all fighting over who got to have the Mary & Jesus duck(s), shown above. We spent about an hour talking about sharing, how to listen to other people patiently, and how to come up with win-win scenarios (as opposed to the win-lose, lose-win, lose-lose, or opt out). Currently Mary and Jesus are in the opt-out scenario on my desk. There you go. Steven Covey applied to duck hostage management.

And where's Joseph?

First cuckholded, now duckless. That poor guy gets no respect.

Did you ask them, "What would ducky Jesus do?"
