Hi Bob,

I got a solution for the sacrifice “you must tell your parents you're not going” if that doesn't help shut your eyes and don’t watch the sacrifice.

Hi Katin,

The best solution I have is read a cookbook or when your parents don't have to go anywhere ask them. Don’t put the heat on high and try not to touch the fire.
