    I was a military kid.  When we lived in Italy, I remember being told that I had to bascially 'buck up and deal'.  This was interpreted to mean don't complain, don't rock the boat, etc.  I'm not sure all families had the same 'rule'.  But, I think it stunted some of my ability to express myself constructively.

    So, when with a kid, don't just let, "I'm alright" go without question.  (Unless, of course, you really know the kid and have for a bit.)  They may not really feel that way, but feel that they have to be 'responsible'.
