As every good parent knows, the only way to ever truly get through to your kids is with compassion, respect and love. If that doesn’t work, try yelling. Now, Frankie Heck isn’t a yeller. Wait a minute. Yes, she is. But all that is about to change.
There’s a lot going on with the Heck kids. Axl has to write a detailed report on the Aztecs that must be bound in a very specific cover booklet. Sue is trying out for the majorettes. She actually has a decent shot at becoming a baton twirler this year, as an outbreak of swine flu took out a lot of the competition. She’ll just have to cancel a babysitting gig to attend tryouts. As for Brick, he needs a hat for “hat day” at school next week.
