Ultimately, there is no excuse for your child to miss school or to be late. In the end there may be no asset more valuable to your child’s future than a complete and well-rounded education – except, perhaps, honesty.

As a born-and-bred New Jersey girl who grew up with The Boss, I can only hope my son has the pleasure and luck this little girl had in getting to see Bruce & his E-Street Band perform! All I can say is, “Well done!” to dad for not attempting to hide this fact, and of course for his sense of humor.
