My 10-year-old, on the other hand, glumly glanced at the backpack I'd given him and set it aside.
"Ben, don't you want to see what's in it?" I asked him.
He looked at me blankly then dutifully unzipped it, eyed the contents and zipped it right back up again.
After doing a few emergency drills for which Ben was unusually quiet I asked him what was wrong.
