Here’s the difference between how my husband and I respond to our kids.
Megan: (dreading her math test tomorrow) I’m feeling so stressed. Can I stay home from school tomorrow from stress?
Albert: (in deadpan voice) Hello, my daughter Megan will not be at school today. She has had a nervous breakdown and thinks she is a rabbit. We will send her back to school as soon as she stops gnawing on her carrot.
