Wisdom of the 80’s: Parental style

(scene opens with Team Middle Children out of control)
Me: (finishes buckling Delta into his seat, gets behind the wheel) Would you like to tell me what that’s all about?
Beta: (outraged) Gamma kept knocking on the window at me even though I told her to stop! Like she was doing it just to make me upset!
Gamma: (mocking laughter)
Me: She probably was. In life, there will always be people who will do things for the sole purpose of annoying the crap out of you. The only way to win is not to play.
Beta: (engages Epic Pout(tm))
Me: (turns on the Loop really loud and cruises the highway)
