    Hi Marg!

    If a child scrapes their knee alone, does it hurt?

    I remember an old DENNIS THE MENACE strip like this (And Dennis, at least, had real friends to play with). He wiped out somehow, fell hard and REALLY hurt himself. Tommy or someone says, “Wow, Dennis are you OK?” Dennis: “Yeah I guess so, but I think I’ll go home now…” All the kids: “Gee Dennis, you sure are brave (etc, etc)” Dennis walks a long way home, into his mom’s house, and THEN lets go: “Waaah - I fell down!!!”

    Hey, an owie is good for some motherly attention, maybe even some ice cream. You gotta get it when you have a REAL scrape because mom can see through a make believe owie.

    (I’m listening to some Collective Soul as I write this).

    I just love mom’s reaction. That protective instinct sure can kick in quick.

    Just scream “MEDIC” at the top of your lungs.

    If a child skins his knee in a forest and there’s no one to hear his wailing………..

    you think it hurts now, just wait till the iodine/Mercurichrome hits the owie… or so it went when I was a kid

    mum told me i did this after i rode my trike down 2 stories of stairs into the garden (abt 48 yrs ago). copeing with pain & shock / dealing with reality, until one can find mum, when its ok to let it all out. mum is more the safe haven and fixer-upperer than audience. can remember the pink stained skin… but these days there is Betadine Ointment (no alcohol to sting). Thats what ist called here in Aus anyway (povidone iodine, ointment)

    You need the audience to make it worthwhile.
