The closest I have come to flipping over tables recently is losing my cool over the state of the house when the whole family is inside all day, continually getting out new toys to pile on top of the toys already on the floor. We start tidying, and certain family members inevitably begin playing with the toys they are supposedly putting away. And then I get angry all over again and threaten to take away cartoons.
About Rights and Responsibilities, parishioner Pat Ball writes: While we have individual rights, we are social beings and belong to many groups starting with our nuclear families. Our belief in a Triune God gives us the example of how our lives are lived in relationship. Because of that, we need to abide by rules that are meant to protect the rights of all in the community.
