If anyone is wondering what the latest is over here?
Nothin' but attitude from this one.
All those experienced parents out there that tell me "You need to stop that early"- I am all ears. Give me all that valuable advice that prevents children from becoming smart-mouths in the later years.
Here's what I'm looking at.
"Jack, you need to watch your mouth."
"YOU need to watch your mouth, Mom!"
"Jack, please start picking your toys up, I've asked 6 times."
"MOOOOOOM! Just be quiet!"
"I'm turning the Wii off Jack, if you keep getting upset."
"If you turn that off, I'm going to poke you in the eye."
All I'm asking for is the instant reaction I should give, because what it SEEMS like, is I'll give him the instant reaction- and he gives it right back. Poor Jack, being the third person in the home, feels like he too, is an adult- and he too, is a parent. He's only mimicking what he sees around him. So it's tricky.
Again, I'm all ears.
