You didn’t ding me on avoiding conflict! What a relief! I realized almost immediately that I need to take away those skates so he’d be in worse shape.
I’m going to ding you for NOT recognizing you DO HAVE CONFLICT. You have a barefoot and homeless child in an unforgiving environment. He has to compete with older and stronger children (or adults) for food and shelter. Specifically, he’s first day on a job that he needs. You have TONS of conflict. 😉
Conflict is NOT always a car going over a cliff, remember? Conflict is not (always) bombs and guns. Conflict is an urgent and undeniable I MUST slammed up against an equally formidable YOU CANNOT. (Jacqueline Lichtenberg)
Me thinks you done got that. 😉
