Mom of four teaches son to stay away from Tricky People which saves his life
2 Jodie was grateful that the boys were safe
The fact that Jodie had left them alone outside the hospital made her both sick and grateful at the fact that nothing happened and the boys were safe. “While on that bench, they were approached by an adult female and two punk males who asked them if they’d help them out by going into the bathroom where her boyfriend was hiding from the doctor and see if they could convince him to come out and get treated.” CJ the 10 year old remembered what his mother had taught him a while ago to stay away from tricky people.
Jodie had never taught them to stay away from strangers because she knew ultimately they may have to talk to one. Instead she taught them to stay away from tricky people. CJ narrated how the strangers persisted with the boys saying “Please? You could really save his life if you’d just go in that bathroom and tell him it’s safe to come out.” But CJ simply kept saying “no, thank you” until they finally gave up.
