“Matt and Mandy,” Friend, Apr. 1994, 23
It’s raining! May we play outside?
Yes, but put on your rain boots and raincoats and rain hats first. This is a cold April rain.
I’m not wearing all that stuff.
This is fun!
What’s so fun about it?
Oh, Matt—we’d better get you out of those wet things.
Are you going to punish me?
You’ve punished yourself, Matt. I give you rules to help you be happy, not to keep you from having fun.
That’s why Heavenly Father gives us commandments too.
Can I have a cough drop?
