Quote of the Day

This afternoon the Boy recieved a lengthy time out for smacking my arm when he got frustrated. At the end of the time out, I sat with him so we could go over what he had learned.

**note: the answer I'm looking for is "tell them why I'm mad"**

Maggy: If you are upset and mad with someone what can you do about it?

The Boy: You don't hit?

Maggy: No, you don't hit, that's right. What else?

The Boy: .... You say you're sorry?

Maggy: Yes, that would be nice. What else could you do?

The Boy: ....... You ask them to go ride bikes?

Maybe we should all think like 3 year olds more often...

We love comments! We are happy to answer questions, join in debate and conversation, or just say hi. All we ask is for respect. Respect us and others. Keep it civil. Obviously we aren't afraid of cussing but we don't like anyone degraded or invalidated.

We also know we make mistakes. Feel free to call us out. You can't improve things that need it if you aren't aware of it.

If you have an opinion share it but know if it is going to cause hurt to someone we care about we will not approve it.

Most of all have fun!!
