Edit: On the other hand, the boy is pretty smart. He figured out himself that possibly his dad just wants to teach him a lesson and the bike is not really stolen. So, from what I hear, he hasn't been terribly upset about it. I wonder what the parents will do if the boy just accepts quietly that he doesn't have a bike (for now) and doesn't beg for it?
Or loses all interest in the BMX competitions.

Oh well, children all over the world survive their parents. It’s impossible not to do things wrong sometimes.

I didn't know about the possible boundary issues with St. Pierre and Miquelon.

Wow. That is large.

I think if I were Evita's nephew's parent, I'd be tempted to give him the bike right before the competition. Like Andreea said, though, I think following through on stated consequences is important. I have one friend who used to say one thing and then if her kid bugged her enough, she'd give in. That always bothered me. She's better at not giving in now.
