Recently I needed to stop by my
office at work to pick something up and I had to take Baby Bee along. He was
more than reluctant to go because of "the people" there. He came up
with a number of alternate plans (he could stay home, he could go to his
caregiver's house, he could wait in the car) but the reality was he had no
other choice. He was paralyzed with fear. So rather than dragging him against
his will, I did what all parents do--I
bargained with him.
