caring for kids
We sure did have nice weather Monday afternoon and so it was another bouncy-house Monday for Dylan and his friends. This morning I was talking about a situation where my 3 year old hurt the feelings of a playmate. The neighborhood kids came over to bouncy away with Dylan and one of the kids came to me and said, "Dylan told me to go home and never come over again." As she cried I asked Dylan if he said that and without hesitation, he said "Yes". I called him over and eye to eye I explained that it's not nice to hurt feelings, you should apologize. He looked at me with a blank face as I asked, "Are you going to say your sorry"? "Nope" he replied. Well within a minute it blew over and I realized, he's only 3 and doesn't really grasp the concept yet. To make sure, I did some research.
