Hugh and I conversed with The Teenager's volleyball coach today, using what can only be described as the Good Cop/Bad Cop approach. Typically, I am not a fan of this method but do have to agree that it generally works in our favor when utilizing it on one of our children.
It would appear that it works equally well with volleyball coaches and I'm hoping that we have all arrived at a good place; time will tell
For the record, I was the good cop.
Shocker, I know.
