Dr. Thompson means what she says, as her patients will tell you. One little boy, Jed, didn't listen to her ground rules. He was quite naughty during his examination. The consequences? He didn't get the privilege of playing with the music boxes. Six months later when he came to the doctor's office to be examined again, he announced that he was going to be good this time so he could listen to the music boxes. He was VERY good!
Yes, fifty years of working with children, being a working mother with two energetic children now grown, and a grandmother of four, has taught Dr. Thompson many tricks.
