My Reward For Being A Good Kid
All day my kid has been putting an effort into complying with the one request I gave him, to keep his hands to himself. When I asked him what reward he wanted to get for his good behavior he answered with a simple but yet affirmative “I want to hit my brother” in his defense his brother had just smacked him behind his head.
I do like to encourage both my kids to behave like civilized humans and not to beat each other every time something doesn’t go their way. I mean the expression ‘boys will be boys doesn’t justify violent behavior from either of them. Hopefully one day I won’t have to tell them not to hit each other they will be able to respect each other and live a civilized life.
