Hughes was waiting for Jesus, but all this time he couldn’t see him. When all the other young children got saved Hughes felt ashamed that he was holding everything up.

Parents have the power to not make their children eat junk food and to decrease the chances of their child ending up with a long term illness. Children though have a much bigger power in getting what they want and that is called pester power.
