Children offer their thoughts on what Jim should do - answer the call of duty or respect the promise he made to his daughter to attend her judo competition.
I don't think he should go to the robbery, I think he should go home... because he's going to make Karen happy taking her to judo... and he's going to make his wife happy.
I think he should go and catch the robbers, rather than his daughter's judo lesson... because if he doesn't catch the robbers the world won't be safe and more break-ins will happen.
I don't think he should bother with the robbery because he actually promised his daughter that he would go and if he doesn't show up she's not going to trust him anymore.
I reckon if he goes catching the robbers he'll feel upset about his daughter... and if he goes to judo with his daughter he'll probably think 'What's happened to that robber?'
I think because he's finished his shift... it should be the policemen's job who are on shift now... and he's already said to his daughter that he would do that... so I think he should keep with his promise.
