student boys pull fire alarm as a prank with no consequences

Consequences

So, as dads, it is our job is to not only impart as much wisdom as we can to our children, but to let them know that there are consequences for their behavior. When there are consequences, most children (most, but not all) pause before they do something stupid. Eventually (we hope) this pause turns into impulse control later on.

Like maybe in their early 30s.
