Bad Kid? Send him to boot camp.

Life is truly a play. No — make that a soap opera.

Overheard at the playground today, a mom to her 5-year old son who was reluctant to leave:

Mom: “Remember what I told you about your friend Matthew, and where they sent him this summer?”
Son (sulkily): ” Yeah.”
Mom: “Well that’s what we’re going to do with you next year.”
Son (panicked): “No!”
Mom: “Then get into the car right now.”

Where do you “send” a five-year old, anyway?
