Mrs. Henderson told her son, Jon, for the third time that evening, “You had better do your homework before it gets too late. Jon shot back, “If it is so important to you, why don’t you do it!” Mrs. Henderson was shocked. After all, she was only trying to help. She reacted by saying, “Don’t talk to me that way, young man. I’m your mother.” Jon reacted right back, “Well, don’t talk to me that way. I’m your son.” At this point Mrs. Henderson stepped in and shouted; “Go to your room right now. You are grounded until you can learn to be respectful.” Jon shouted back, “Fine,” as he stomped off to his room and slammed the door.
