Me (exasperated): “Why can’t you have good behaviour? You know you would get what you want if you had good behaviour”!
6 year old: “No I wouldn’t! I had good behaviour last night and you wouldn’t let me have McDonalds for dinner. And I had good behaviour this morning and you wouldn’t let me have my Thomas sweets for lunch!”
Mmmmm all of this is true. I am going to have to rethink my persuasive arguments.
Of course it bleedin’ obvious why kids misbehave. Because 8 times out of ten they can’t have what they want, even if they do behave!
So what is the answer for good behaviour? Tell me your thoughts.
Don’t forget to enjoy your day.
