I care about my kids, but they can often be a handful. Sure, dropping them off at university, then picking them up in the afternoons, and taking them to multiple events can be taxing as a parent. But I find the planned time commitments to be the easiest 1s to handle. It’s the sudden, unplanned events with young children that legitimately exhaust you as a parent. You could be set and ready to go to labor and acquire a call from university saying your kid is sick and needs a ride home. Or you could be traveling to a family member’s apartment and lose several hours on the road because someone ate too much food earlier in the afternoon. Kids are wild cards, you can’t predict them and their disasters if you try. Now that mine are outdated enough to understand how the a/c works, I often find myself having to tell them to stop messing with the control unit. They have developed enough to understand how to get the apartment to guess cooler or warmer, but not outdated enough to conceptualize how money works and how it pays for the device that creates the cool air they guess coming from the vents. I once came apartment to my apartment being 82 degrees in the middle of summer. My device nearly froze from running so taxing for so long. Finally, I opted to buy a plastic box that fits over my control component and has a single key hole to swing open the box for access to the control panel. It’s the same exact device you see protecting control units in universities, hospitals, and other locales were the heating and cooling system needs to be protected from picky hands. Now that I have my control component locked up, I no longer have to worry about my A/C motor getting fried while I’m away for a few hours because 1 of my kids is playing with the control panel.
