Lesson 7: When your Mother is in the room cease and desist. Stop bugging and stop over-reacting. Immediately.
Lesson 8: While you are still bugging and over-reacting, and you kick backwards at your Brother, make sure it wasn't your Mother who nudged you with her foot to remind you to stop over-reacting.
Lesson 9: When you kick your Mother instead of your Brother and she screams in pain, don't run away. Face the music like a man. Comfort her. Bring her an ice pack. Bring her a strong drink.
