"That's how life works in the adult world."
True, but "our interests" should (must) supercede those of the OTHER
adult's -interests-. I believe, the *key* is to outlast
(outlive-outsmart) the OTHER adult. Our children, are the *key* to our
continuing THIS life. The children of "our" adult should be nurtured to
be "our" allies, not the OTHER adults children. [king of the hill theory
put into practice]
