As I was talking, selling and watching I noticed the kids. All the kids wanted to climb the steps behind me. The steps were something to achieve slow or fast. cautiously or recklessly but one way or another the steps needed to be conquered by every kid except one who resisted his mother's encouragements and just wanted to stay where he was.
Parents reactions were quite varied too from encouragement to worry to out right NO DO NOT climb those steps too dangerous.
But sooner or later they all will have to climb the steps slow or fast, cautiously or recklessly they, we, all have to find our own way to climb those steps.
